Around Edinburgh


Edinburgh - Scotland's capital - has a great deal to offer the visitor.

During August every year the world-famous Edinburgh Festival is held; there is also the alternative 'Fringe' Festival. (Some Fringe events can be quite eccentric, so go prepared for anything). Both the festival and Fringe provide a wide range of entertainment, including plays on rather odd stages - in an elevator for example!

There are a number of other regular events in Edinburgh including the Film Festival, Book Festival and annual Hogmanay celebrations at New Year.

Edinburgh also has a wealth of fascinating historical places to see. There's Edinburgh Castle itself of course, but also St. Giles Cathedral, and Holyrood Palace, to name but two. See Historic Scotland for more details.

If sport is your passion, Edinburgh offers a wide range of activities. Find the largest dry-ski slope in Europe at Midlothian Ski Centre, or visit the home of Scottish Rugby at Murrayfield, just a stone's throw along the road from McNeil House. The National Rock Climbing Centre of Scotland offers all sorts of adventurous activities. And of course there's the home of golf - The Royal and Ancient Golf Club of Saint Andrews.

If something a little more relaxing has greater appeal, then as well as theatres, cinemas, art galleries and libraries, there's Edinburgh Zoo - literally just along the road.

Other places of well-known interest include the Royal Botanic Gardens, the Gallery of Modern Art and the Dean Gallery, these last two being within walking distance of McNeil House. There are other art galleries, and don't forget the Royal Yacht Britannia.

Edinburgh also makes a great base to visit some of the other fine castles and cultural visitor attractions around the country. See Scottish Natural Heritage
