Getting to and around Edinburgh
All flights to Edinburgh arrive at its only airport, located eight miles west of the city. Once you arrive, taking public transport is an inexpensive and practical way to get to any of our holiday apartments in Edinburgh. Holiday apartments located in the city centre allow you to stroll about at your leisure, and those holiday apartments in Edinburgh's outer districts are all well connected with the public transportation system. There are also numerous bus tours that allow you to hop on and off at the many points of interest spread throughout the city. Taxis can also get you where you need to go, though these are slightly more expensive.
One of Europe's most beautiful cities and home to the famous Edinburgh International Festival each August, Edinburgh is a city as compact as it is diverse. Best explored on foot, you'll discover a series of diverse areas, from the medieval alleyways and cobbled streets of Old Town to New Town's elegant Georgian avenues. No matter which of our holiday apartments in Edinburgh you ultimately book, you should start your exploration of the city in the city centre with a visit to Edinburgh Castle, the city's most popular tourist attraction and home to the Crown Jewels, the Stone of Destiny and spectacular views of the city. Then, make your way down the Royal Mile towards the Palace of Holyroodhouse, taking in the historic tenement buildings, St Giles' Cathedral and The Real Mary King's Close along the way. Drop into the Scotch Whisky Heritage Centre to learn about the 'water of life', or follow the Water of Leith walkway to the shores of the Firth of Forth. Here, you can board the Royal Yacht Britannia, or refuel at some of Edinburgh's best bars and restaurants. If you choose self-catering holiday apartments in Edinburgh, you can also take advantage of the award-wining Edinburgh Farmers' Market, a great way to experience true local life in the comfort of your own home.A unique experience in Edinburgh
Travellers with holiday apartments in Edinburgh who enjoy the outdoors should head to Arthur's Seat, an extinct volcano located within the city limits.

We also offer holiday apartments in Edinburgh that are closer to the hills, allowing you to get out and move even faster than if you stay in the city centre. Those who like to be active at night will enjoy the numerous bars, pubs and clubs spread throughout the city, where you can dance the night away with locals and tourists alike while enjoying a local beer.For more information, please have a look at our Local Food Guide.
