City Breaks in Edinburgh

Explore Edinburgh

Aside from the big three of Edinburgh Castle, Holyrood Palace and Arthur’s Seat, mentioned above, Edinburgh has an almost inexhaustable supply of history and culture. It is the world’s first UNESCO City of Literature, and the Writers’ Museum celebrates the lives and works of Robert Burns, Sir WalterScott and Robert Louis Stevenson amongst Scotland’s literary sons and daughters.

For slightly lower-brow entertainment, Edinburgh Zoo houses over 1000 amazing animals and attractions, with daily parades, talks and demonstrations to educate and thrill the whole family.

Only London can boast more Michelin-starred restaurants than Edinburgh, and alongside the culinary superstars there is a host of quality bistros, gastropubs and cafes to enjoy.

Musselburgh by River Esk, Scotland

Musselburgh

On the south shore of the Firth of Firth at the mouth of the River Esk, Musselburgh is the largest town in East Lothian, dating from the Roman invasion around 80AD. Its rich history is still evident in the 13th century stone bridge spanning the Esk, used by Edward II in his retreat from the Battle of Bannockburn in 1314, and the Tolbooth, built circa 1590. The town takes its name from the mussel beds at the mouth of the Esk, once a mainstay of the economy.

The Coast

Tantallon Castle stares out to sea from its rocky headland, and nearby you can explore the ancient harbour at Dunbar or take a boat ride round the Bass Rock, home to the largest colony of Atlantic Gannets in the world, a noisy, spectacular sight.

Kite Surfing on Scotish Coast

Watersports feature strongly on this strech of coast with surfers and kayakers taking advantage of the waves in Dunbar, and sailors and kitesurfers picking up on the wind around North Berwick.

The area is also a big draw for divers with a world-class variety of shipwrecks and underwater cliff dives.

If you’re more inclined to stay dry whilst exploring the coast there are plenty of sightseeing boat tours where you can spot puffins, seals and even dolphins. Sea-fishing boating trips are also available for those looking to catch their supper.

Many walking routes pass through great vantage points and there are hidden delights to discover with river valleys, woodland, secret bays and historic sites. You can now walk the length of the East-Lothian coast, and the John Muir Way runs for almost 73km from Edinburgh to the Borders.
