Edinburgh and the Lothians

Whether you’re situated in Edinburgh itself or somewhere nearby, a self-catering holiday in this region combines the very best of city culture and quiet coastal and countryside locations.

Edinburgh needs little introduction as it’s well known as one of Scotland’s jewels in the crown. This majestic city is packed with a wonderful mix of historical buildings that tell the tale of a fascinating past, lovely green open spaces, first class shops and a fine collection of restaurants and pubs. It’s a place to enjoy rich cultural heritage, bustling city life and some of the UK’s most glorious countryside handily placed right on the door step.

The city attracts visitors from around the world who come to see its wonderful architecture and learn about its rich history. The Old Town is well known for the Royal Mile which extends along cobbled streets from Edinburgh Castle to Grassmarket. The New Town is equally fascinating and in contrast with the Old Town has a well ordered street grid layout with wide boulevards and grand neoclassical architecture. In both areas you’ll find national galleries and museums and a host of historically significant buildings. Located just outside the city in Holyrood Park, Arthurs Seat offers a relatively easy climb to the top with some spectacular views.

Horticulturalists will love the wonderful array of colours that can be found at the Royal Botanic Gardens, which has one of the world’s largest living collections of plants you’ll find. More regal encounters can be found on board the Royal Yacht Britannia, now permanently moored in Leith. Despite now being out of service it remains a uniquely fascinating icon from British history.

The Lothians rich heritage extends to the surrounding countryside of west Lothian, with castles and historical sites, rolling countryside and country walks. In east Lothian you’ll find beautiful stretches of quiet sandy beaches and some of the finest golf courses in the world.

So this area serves both those looking for an active outdoor break as well as those interested in a first class city break. A great combination of culture, history, food, drink and the great outdoors!
