Activities/Attractions: Edinburgh must surely be one of the most beautiful cities in the world. It's main thoroughfare (Prince's Street) while having some beautiful monuments, gardens, art galleries, and stores, is dominated by a large castle which sits atop a most imposing rock. There are castles, palaces, museums, galleries, cathedrals , churches and municipal buildings enough to satisfy the most ardent archeological scholar.

For the culture vultures there are many fine theatres and music halls especially during the various festivals that take place throughout the year. The Jazz and Folk Music festivals are only two of the yearly musical events and we must not forget the International Festival (Aug-Sept) when every hall in the town is transformed into a theatre for the duration.

Edinburgh can also boast of some of the finest bars and restaurants to be found anywhere. All tastes are catered for whether it is Pub Grub and a pint, haute cuisine and fine wines or something in between. There are a number of local restaurants which cater for all tastes and a plentiful supply of take-away specialists who will supply everything from a basic fish and chips, Italian delights (Pizza & Pasta), up to an Indian or Chinese banquet.

Our Edinburgh Guest House is five minutes walk from the Royal Commonwealth Swimming Pool and a 30 minute walk will take you to the top of Arthur's Seat, Edinburgh's fine volcanic hill. This will give panoramic views of the whole of Edinburgh, including our Edinburgh Guest House, and over into the Kingdom of Fife.
