Ideas for Short Break in Edinburgh


    we are thinking of visting edinburgh from 9th to 12th october.

    1) Any particularly good areas to stay in edinburgh? I am not too sure of the geography of the city and location of all famous places to visit.

    2) Can any one recommend any hotels to stay in the city? My budget is about £75 per night.

    3) this may be a bit daft question but fogive me if so.Does anyone know if there are any day tours from edinburgh city to nearby places (e.g "lochness", "highlands" etc)

    Many Thanks for your time


    :)have a look at these the price is for the whole stay and you can use quidco.…rue
    :-Dand do visit jimmy chungs chinese its about £9 pp for all you can eat and its lovely

    I know its on the outskirts of the city but I would def have a look at Dakota hotel, its very close to the Forth Bridge.

    muirhouse!!!!!!!!!!!just kidding you are much better staying closer to town like princess street or there abouts because that way you are slap bang in the middle of the lot.(muirhouse is the worst place in edinburgh so dont stay there!!!)

    I've often used the 2for1 offer with holidayinn, nice place, next to the zoo…EX1

    try and take a tour of the highlands with scotline tours, they are excellent, the tour is really scenic

    I don't know much about Edinburgh I'm afraid so cant offer any sound advice re what to do, BUT, my folks needed a hotel for one night at short notice there & called the Tourist Information in Edinburgh & ended up with a lovely 4-5* hotel for a ludicrously cheap price - contemporary decor but with lovely retro touches, like huge freestanding roll-top bath & pretty central as I remember.... worth a shot?

    Good luck!

    There were a few tips on this thread…gh/

    Loch Ness is a bit of a trip from Edinburgh and would probably take you a good 3-4 hours depending on traffic. Loch Lomond is a couple of hours away, but there are lots of places nearer that are worth a visit like Loch Tay where the Scottish Crannog Centre is. There's also the Fortingall Yew near there where a Yew Tree reputed to be 5000 years old grows. The Falkirk Wheel is worth a visit and is much closer to Edinburgh.

    The Tourist Info places in Edinburgh will give you lots of info for the city itself and th surrounding area too.
