Welcome to Edinburgh

There’s so much to discover in Scotland’s capital from high up at Arthur’s Seat, all the way down to the Royal Mile. Soak up the quaint charm of the traditional pubs in the Old Town, go on a hike, try your first taste of haggis, party in underground bars or have the time of your life at the Fringe Festival. Whatever you decide to do, you’ll leave Edinburgh feeling refreshed and wishing to go back again ASAP. The city is very welcoming, so you’ll instantly feel at home and ready to make friends with some locals in a cosy Scottish pub. From rolling hills, bagpipes, castles and booze, we’ve got all the best travel tips ahead of your trip to the historic city...

  • The Old Town is cheaper so stick to the clubs, bars and pubs in this area

  • Wear comfy shoes because in the Old Town you will find some steep walkways 

  • Pack an umbrella and a rain mac and don’t forget to layer up in the winter

  • In Scotland you can’t buy any alcohol after 10pm in supermarkets 

  • You can take the 'Airlink 100' bus to and from the airport it stops right outside the hostel

  • You can walk from the Old Town to the New Town is about 15-20 minutes so there is no need to rely on public transport within the city
