Edinburgh travel tips

1) Many tourists stay at the campsites in the Edinburgh area, but they are closed in winter

Camping is a popular option in Edinburgh. You can head to the nearby Loch Lomond National Park for such a stay, but be ready to pay at least 17 pounds (20 euro) per night just for a space for your tent; electricity is not included. Plus, most camping spots are closed in winter.

2) Buy souvenirs from Edinburgh at the Royal Mile Market

The Royal Mile Market is small but colourful, located in a former church that is open 7 days a week. Here you can buy various hand-made souvenirs, local designer accessories, natural Scottish cosmetics, and sweets. Everything that tourists usually bring from Scotland is in one place.

3) Visit the Rosslyn Chapel in Edinburgh, made famous by Dan Brown's The Da Vinci Code

The last three chapters of Dan Brown's The Da Vinci Code are set at Rosslyn Chapel in Edinburgh. This chapel is richly decorated with sculptures and frescoes depicting Biblical subjects, the times of the Knights of the Templar Order, and the Masonic Society. It is quite a popular place among tourists, although it is paid – the entrance costs ca. 17 euro.
