Self-catering holiday rentals in Edinburgh for your home stay

As the capital of Scotland, holiday lettings in Edinburgh are popular all year round. There is so much to do here that you would need several weeks to enjoy all that this historic city has to offer. The city is divided into the old and new towns but each is overlooked by the majestic Arthur's Seat, a sizeable hill which is neither too daunting nor too easy to climb, thus giving visitors a real sense of achievement, not to mention spectacular views from the summit. When booking self-catering accommodation in Edinburgh for your short break, be aware that this city is built along ancient lines so does not follow a rigid pattern but if you do get lost, you are never far from the Royal Mile. This is the name given to Edinburgh's most famous shopping district where tourists will find shops and stalls selling traditional Scottish fare like smoked salmon, authentic shortbread and every tartan trinket you could wish for. Amongst these historic buildings you will also discover hidden gems of traditional crafts shops with handmade souvenirs.

Holiday Letting in Edinburgh for your short break

Self-catered cottages in Edinburgh are always a popular choice with families. In an elegant stone clad cottage you can make this holiday home your own with a generous kitchen and plenty of space inside for the whole family to be at ease. If you will be travelling as a couple, a holiday apartment in Edinburgh would be ideal giving you all the modern conveniences you need without costing the earth. Just outside of the city itself, a number of holiday lets can be made in period town houses or villas within easy access of the city life and surrounding countryside. When the university is on vacation including during the summer holidays and New Year when Edinburgh's most famous festival: Hogmanay takes centre stage student apartments are also available to rent for short breaks.

Best time to enjoy Edinburgh

For twelve months a year, holiday apartments in Edinburgh are very popular; during the summer holidays there is plenty to keep the whole family amused but it is as a winter city that Edinburgh really comes to life. On New Year’s Eve the streets are crammed with happy revellers celebrating Hogmanay with a drink and cheerful renditions of Auld Lang Syne. Whatever time of year you book a vacation home in Edinburgh, one place you must make time to visit is Greyfriars Kirk where you can discover the charming story of Greyfriars Bobby; a Skye terrier who patiently guarded his dead master's grave every day for 14 years. The story is so uplifting that Bobby himself is commemorated at the kirk with a statue.
