Edinburgh travel tips

1) Visit Stockbridge and Canonmills districts of Edinburgh for local stores and the Royal Botanic Garden

Stockbridge and Canonmills are the two areas very close to New Town. There are many shops and cafes here, and the best place for a relaxing break in the city is the Royal Botanic Garden. The park is free to enter, and greenhouses can be visited for £4.50 (€5.2).

2) Admire the architecture of St. Giles’ Cathedral, built in the 14th century in Edinburgh

St. Giles’ Cathedral is also known as the High Kirk of Edinburgh and was built in the 12th century. The building you can see now was erected in the 14th century. It has a beautiful and austere interior and several significant monuments, including one to Robert Louis Stevenson. He wrote Treasure Island and The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde.

3) Stop by the monument of famous writer Walter Scott in Edinburgh

Sir Walter Scott once put Scotland back on the world cultural map with his Ivanhoe and Rob Roy novels. The Gothic monument looks really imposing, and you can also climb it to see the city from above. In this case, the admission fee is ca. 10 euro.
