Visitors from across the globe come to Edinburgh for romantic weekends, hen or stag parties, organized activities, hiking, world-famous historical landmarks, vibrant nightlife experience, and more. 


Pentland Hills Regional Park is the perfect place for the adventurer in you. Step into a pair of comfortable sneakers and get ready for mountain biking, hiking, skiing, golf, fishing and other organized activities. The 822 feet tall Arthur’s seat is an extinct volcano which is a couple of miles east of the city and is quite convenient to reach. If you go through Holyrood Park, it would add to the fun as you would get to trek your way up this royal hunting estate.


One of the most recognizable and iconic symbols of the city, Edinburgh Castle is visited by 70% of leisure visitors to Edinburgh. It literally takes you to the 12th century if you opt in for an actor lead tour. History lovers are in for a treat because just 32 kilometers from the city is the Cairnpapple Hill, home to the Neolithic ceremonial ground that can be dated back to 3800 BC. A major tourist destination for a little short of two centuries, Camera Obscura and World of Illusions is situated in the old town and is a great family venue.


With restaurants like ‘Kitchin’ which has been awarded at numerous occasion including ‘Best Restaurant Experience,’ and ‘The Shore’ which is the perfect amalgamation of a classic Scottish pub, serene view of the sea, melodious live music, and wooden interiors, puts Edinburgh a great destination for foodies. 


Shake a leg at Sneaky Pete’s to the trendy tunes and have a great time at the hip bar. It is a small but extremely happening place to have a blast in the evening. If you are in a mood for some theater, step into Traverse theater, an absolute gem of Edinburgh’s cultural arena.
