Stay at one of our hostels in Edinburgh, Scotland, and revel in the medieval architecture, cobblestone streets and tales of hauntings. Prepare a picnic and hike up the extinct volcano, Arthur’s Seat, for an afternoon spent admiring the panoramic views over this remarkable city. Visit the Old Town and walk the Royal Mile - a High Street sandwiched between Edinburgh Castle and Holyrood Palace. The street is peppered with shops, restaurants and historical sights including St Giles Cathedral which dates all the way back to 1243. Marvel at masterpieces by Rembrandt and Monet at the National Gallery of Scotland, and let your hair down at one of the city’s many festivals. If you’re visiting in August, don’t miss Festival Fringe, the largest arts festival in Europe featuring theatre, dance, comedy, and exhibitions. Try haggis, Scotland's signature food, while you dine at the lively and stylish waterside district, Leith.
