Edinburgh travel tips

1) If you are coming to Edinburgh in the summer, make sure you have booked your accommodation in advance

During the summer, Edinburgh hosts two major festivals, the International Festival and the Fringe. During this period, the cost of hotels and apartments in Edinburgh rises dramatically. In addition, many hotels are completely sold out. Therefore, if you are travelling to Edinburgh in the summer, book your accommodation in advance.

2) Learn how Scotch whiskey is made at The Scotch Whiskey Heritage Center in Edinburgh

Scotland is the birthplace of Scotch whiskey. When you are in Edinburgh, take a few hours to visit The Scotch Whiskey Heritage Center, which is at the top of the Royal Mile. Here you can sign up for a tour, learn about the history of whiskey and distillation methods, as well as taste the best whiskeys, and buy a bottle or two at affordable prices.

3) Visit the Harry Potter locations on a day trip around Edinburgh

If you're a Harry Potter fan, head from Edinburgh to the Lochaber area. For example, you can see the railroad on the high Victorian Glenfinnan Viaduct bridge that the Hogwarts Express raced across. Or admire the Loch Shiel lake, over which Harry Potter flew a hippogriff in the Prisoner of Azkaban movie. Other filming locations in the area include Loch Arkaig, Loch Eilt, Loch Morar, Steall Falls, Rannoch Moor, and others.
