In Scotland hostels are very well-equipped and strategically placed, sometimes you can even find accommodation in an old Scottish castle! It's exciting and the prices of activities are very accessible, especially when you consider the high cost of living. Another advantage is the Scottish hospitality, but remember to eat dinner early because around there they have dinner between 18.00 and 20.00.

I visited the city in October. The weather was beautiful for the period, but the strong cold wind was more than a little annoying. What I can say is that you have to cover up, not so much for the rain as for the wind. So, waterproof jackets and above all wind breakers. In pubs and museums the temperature isn't too high but you should still take off your jacket.

Fleeces, sweaters and hats will come in useful. It's cold and dry, with just a few scattered showers, depending on the day. On sunny days the sky is very pale. The weather is generally cloudy and the temperatures don't exceed 24 ° C, even in summer. You should always carry an umbrella.

You can't beat a fish dinner at Fishers in the City, in the New Town! Atmosphere, warm welcome and fresh fish cooked in imaginative ways. The quality-price ratio is also good, considering the high prices generally found in the city. You are strongly advised to book!

It's very easy to get around the centre on foot, all the major tourist attractions are within walking distance. Buses are the best option to get from the airport to the city, to get to the sea, take local buses which are very convenient. When you're booking the flight from Italy, Easy Jet is very convenient.

I strongly recommend renting a car and going to the North of Scotland: there's Loch Ness and the whole area around Inverness which is worth a visit. The only problem is ... driving on the left, but after the first hurdle, the rest is a walk in the park. Skye is a nice area. Do take a proper whiskey guide, there are a lot of distilleries and there's something for everyone's taste.

The best time in terms of temperature is from the end of June to the middle of July. There are a lot of events in August. At any time, however, take along an umbrella because the weather, though mild, is highly variable. The temperature is around 23/24 degrees.

Although the menu is rather limited compared to the choice that we enjoy in Italy, meat and fish are of divine quality. However, you're adised not to stay for too long because the food you find as a casual tourist is not a gift to our Italian stomachs if eaten continuously!

I think August is one of the least rainy months (it is in Ireland ....). In August there are various contemporary art festivals. To save you should book hotels in advance, I did it in October, and the savings compared to current prices, for 2 people, is estimated at around 60/70 Euros per night (3 star hotel). The stay can be 3 or more days.

There are lots of local pubs where you have fun and never get bored; in August attend the military tattoo, it's the best. During the entire month of August there are performances by street artists, performances by singers, and then the wonderful show at Edinburgh Castle. It's a city to experience and discover.

Edinburgh is a city that you should visit on foot, because it isn't huge and you can better appreciate the different neighbourhoods of the city. You should definitely go to the Royal Mile and Princess Street. The city is beautiful, I would like to go right back.

The castles in the surrounding area are very impressive. Aberdeen is also very pretty. The Highlands are especially beautiful when the barley is high, the wind bends the stalks and the green is very bright. Another place to visit is Inverness, with its almost always foggy loch.

It's a young and dynamic city at any time of the day or night!! I recommend the Royal Mile, it's full of nightclubs and places to eat. Don't leave out a trip north of the city, towards Loch Ness, to see all the natural and historical beauty. Worth seeing in the city: the Royal Palace, Edinburgh Castle.

Edinburgh Castle is the most distinguished landmark of the city; perched on a hilltop, the castle is home to several interesting attractions primarily the Scottish Crown Jewels and the well-preserved St. Margaret’s Chapel. The Palace of Holyroodhouse, though partly in ruins, is very dramatic and also displays the royal art collection. The Royal Botanic Garden spread over several acres and including numerous glasshouses is considered to be the best of its kind in the UK.
The Royal Mile is a long stretch of road flanked by some of the most beautiful buildings of Edinburgh. ... More Of these, the most important is the Museum of Scotland. It houses the most comprehensive collection of artefacts depicting the history of the region.
The Edinburgh Festival includes a range of festivals from the end of July to September. Most important is the Edinburgh International Festival which attracts theatre, opera and music performers from around the world.

Edinburgh is located on the south-eastern coast of Scotland and is its capital city. This city of approximately 448,600 inhabitants is one of the biggest tourist magnets in Europe. The city is nestled in a hilly region covered with lakes and vast woodlands.
Edinburgh enjoys a temperate maritime climate with pleasant summers and mild winters. The city has a long tourist season from May to September; the temperatures during these months range between 15°C and 20°C.
The city had modest beginning as a fortress atop a hill. However, owing to its strategic location it soon ... More gained importance with the Scottish rulers, and has been the capital of Scotland for over 500 years. In fact, it is also known as a ‘literary capital’ as it has been home to many renowned authors.

It's the ideal base to begin a trip around Scotland. The Royal Mile, with Edinburgh Castle on one side and royal house on the other, will introduce you to the wonderful world of Scotland. The people are genuine, as in the entire island. The Scottish castles will surprise you with their beauty, as well as the stunning scenery. You'll leave your heart there!

Edinburgh is simply WONDERFUL! It's a city that you can't miss, especially in August when there is a festival in the castle overlooking the city, then it's busy in the centre, and very quiet towards the suburbs, there is a lot to see and a lot of fun to be had ... GO!
