Beautiful views of the whole city. This former volcano offers terrain to delight hikers of all levels. There are many cosy spaces throughout the park to just lay in the sun or enjoy the calm. A nice way to escape the city. If you want to explore different neighborhoods of the city, you can walk…

“Scotland’s premier museum of natural and anthropological history is an eye-catching mix of old and new: the main hall, a grand, airy space ringed by balconies across three storeys, dates from 1866, while the more modern sandstone section was opened in 1998. Its contents, too, are wide-ranging: from dinosaur skeletons, Egyptian sarcophagi and Tibetan prayer wheels in the old galleries to artefacts of Scottish history in the new wing”

“You can see Calton Hill from the kitchen window. It’s a short steep climb but completely worth it for the amazing views over the city and the added bonus of the Observatory and a fine restaurant (booking advised). ”
