The Lothians region
There is no shortage of things to do and see in Edinburgh and the surrounding areas. Edinburgh has an abundance of historic buildings, places of interest, museums, galleries, theatres, cinemas and shops. Day trips or even longer breaks are readily available to destinations out of Edinburgh to see more of what Scotland has to offer. Lots of leaflets and tourist information are available in the apartment and further help is provided from the Tourist Information Centre (above Waverley Station) on Princes St.
As well as the world renowned Edinburgh International and Fringe Festival in August there is the Edinburgh International Film Festival in June and the Edinburgh Jazz and Blues Festival in July.
Cycling and walking trips are aplenty and if you like golf there are many golf courses in and around Edinburgh.
Take a hike up Arthurs Seat and get the best view of Edinburgh or visit Rosslyn Glen and its Chapel made infamous by The Da Vinci Code.
The Grassmarket is in the historic centre of Edinburgh and is home to numerous bistros, cafes, Scottish pubs and specialist shops selling antiques, books, cashmere, clothes and much more. Restaurants in the pedestrianised areas allow for al fresco eating and drinking within the proximity of the castle with festival and tourist venues all around. The area is steeped in history. Public hangings were held here and it was the haunting ground of the famous body snatchers Burke and Hare. During the summer the place comes alive with street performers, musicians and special events. A quick stroll will take you up to the Royal Mile and the Castle or along to Princes street through its lovely gardens.
