Holidays in Edinburgh

A city topped with an imposing castle that swathes its walled arms around an elegant, compact and ancient city where narrow alleyways pour into streets alive with street entertainers, boutiques, cafés and decadent restaurants. Edinburgh is encircled by ancient green peaks and pooled with emerald parks and the swirling coast of the Firth of Forth around the port at Leith.

Our Edinburgh cottages offer you a great place to stay after a holiday visiting all the wonderful attractions such as Edinburgh Zoo, Arthur’s Seat, the Royal Mile, the National Gallery of Scotland and the intriguing and eerie May King’s Close.
