  • 1. Ibis Edinburgh Centre
    Ibis Edinburgh Centre Royal Mile, Edinburgh, Scotland

    Perfect central location just off the Royal Mile, moments away from the castle. not the most exciting hotel, but clean, modern and so handy for sightseeing. And it's just a short walk from the wonderful David Banns vegetarian restaurant.

  • 2. The Witchery by the Castle
    The Witchery by the Castle, Edinburgh, Scotland

    For sheer decadence this hotel and restaurant can't be beaten. Absolutely stunning and top quality. So if you're splashing out and want a romantic meal or overnight stay, this is the one!

  • 3. Edinburgh Castle
    Edinburgh Castle, Edinburgh, Scotland

    On a clear spring day the views from the castle are fantastic. All the way over to Fife in the North, and down to the Pentland Hills in the South. A great way to get your bearings in the city. Of course it's also a great sight in itself, and a top photo opportunity!

  • 4. Royal Yacht Britannia
    Royal Yacht Britannia, Edinburgh, Scotland

    See how the Royals travelled in style at this waterfront attraction, then enjoy the quiet of a stroll along the Water of Leith, or have a drink in one of the beer gardens in the recently regenerated Leith area.

  • 5. Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art
    Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art One, Edinburgh, Scotland

    Not just a fantastic gallery - it also has a brilliant outdoor land-sculpture. It's an excellent place for lying around in the warm sun and discussing everything you've seen. Then take a walk down to Stockbridge for a look round the boutique shops or a coffee and cake at the tables outside Peckhams deli.
