Edinburgh self-catering accommodation guide

Accommodation in Scotland

Accommodation in Scotland's capital city - Edinburgh

Scotland�s historic capital city, Edinburgh, offers a fabulous choice of self catering accommodation for visitors from both from the UK and abroad. An Edinburgh self catering flat to rent or an Edinburgh apartment to hire is a wonderful base from which to explore all the attractions of Scotland�s first city. Rent a luxury flat in central Edinburgh and have the delights of the city on your doorstep. There is so much to see and do in the city that even a 2 week stay in Edinburgh here won't be long enough to explore all the delights. Edinburgh is a wonderful city to walk round but there is an excellent bus system too if you prefer - and soon there will be tram routes too! The New Town and Old Town have some of the most beautiful architecture in Europe - the Georgian elegence of the New Town with stunning squares and crescents contrasts with the medieval buildings of the Old Town, leading from Edinburgh Castle, down the Royal Mile to Holyrood Palace. Short breaks in Edinburgh are very popular and it is a wonderful place to stay for a city break. The theatres, museums, art galleries and shops are all world-class.

Edinburgh accommodation is of an extremely high standard as befits a capital city - there are contemporary city centre apartments to hire, many with fabulous views of the castle and city skyline, and traditional self-catering close to the city centre which are ideal for a short break as well as a longer holidays. Many of Edinburgh self-catering properties have their own parking space and that is a great boon in the city - of course if you are staying in the heart of Edinburgh you don't need a car at all.

Choose a cottage in the surrounding area and have the best of both world's: easy access to the city and a country cottage to come home to after a busy day sightseeing where you can escape from the hustle and bustle of Edinburgh! Staying in a cottage near Edinburgh is a perfect way to explore the gorgeous East Lothian countryside and coast. There are also houses to rent in West Lothian - the choice is varied from 5 star rentals to a vacation house with a swimming pool to golf houses within easy proximity of 30 golf courses - this part of Scotland has the full range of holiday properties. Finding pet friendly self-catering is always hard in cities, so renting near Edinburgh solves that problem as many of the cottages around Edinburgh allow you to bring your dog on holiday with you. The East Lothian coast is stunning - beautiful coves, sandy beaches with fabulous houses on the beach where you can relax on the beach and swim the the North Sea (wetsuits are usually a good idea!). You can also stay in a luxury house with hot tub or rent the tower of a very historic house in East Lothian. Choose your holiday accommodation, make the booking and have a relaxing holiday in or near the Scottish capital!
