B&Bs in Edinburgh

The city of Edinburgh has a wonderful old-world feel about it. Scotland’s hilly capital city is dotted with neoclassical buildings and manicured gardens and parks. The city interweaves Scottish history and culture with a contemporary vibe, so there’s plenty of entertainment and attractions for visitors of all ages. Opt for one of Edinburgh’s many B&Bs for a real taste of Scottish charm and hospitality. The city has superb shops, plenty of cultural events—including the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in the summer—and opportunities for hiking in the city’s beautiful surrounding countryside.

Things to see in Edinburgh

At one end of the old town, you’ll find the mighty Edinburgh castle, which looms large above the city. The site of the castle has been occupied since the Bronze Age but today, the castle is a popular tourist attraction and is also the site of the famous Edinburgh Military Tattoo festival that takes place very August. For a touch of British royalty, head to Holyrood Palace, the Scottish residence of Queen Elizabeth II. Right in the center of the city, you’ll find Arthur’s Seat—a group of hills popular with hikers, rock climbers, and nature lovers. More nature can be found at the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh, which features four gardens and is a world-famous center for the scientific study of botany and plant sciences. The center also hosts a range of family days and workshops for children. For yet more of Edinburgh’s green side, Prince Street Gardens is an expansive urban park that stretches out through the city center.

Where to stay in Edinburgh

Old Town is the oldest neighborhood in Edinburgh and features the Royal Mile—one of the city’s best-known boulevards—alongside lots of impressive architecture. This area is also where you’ll find most of Edinburgh’s culture and history. If you want to be right in the middle of the main retail district, choose a B&B in Edinburgh’s New Town. Made up of a tight network of streets, squares, and terraces, this district is also one of the town’s largest historical conservation areas.
