Edinburgh is a bastion of history dressed up with pretty facades and incredible architecture. Wynds, or narrow lanes, run outwards from the centre of the Old Town into urban villages that burst with culture and rustic charm, and there are plenty of nooks and crannies just waiting to be explored. Around every twist and turn, there’s a new sight to soak up, whether it’s a vintage bookshop, an ornate church spire, or a hilltop castle. But the natural beauty of Edinburgh is breath-taking, too, complete with soaring bottle-green hills, rust-coloured crags, and the shimmering sea in the distance. The age-old scenes go hand-in-hand with the stunning vistas, creating a city that’s incredibly cosy and cultural. For the contemporary traveller there’s a collection of trendy pubs, impromptu concerts, all-night parties, and an eclectic mix of top-notch shops.

Edinburgh airport is just five miles away from the centre of Scotland’s capital, and there are a number of ways you can easily get into town.
Firstly, there is the premium Airlink bus service, which leaves the airport every 10 minutes and travels to Waverley Bridge in the centre of the city. There are a few stops throughout the west of the city, too, if you’re staying in that part.
Alternatively, if you’d prefer a more budget-friendly option, then hop on the local bus. It takes slightly longer than the Airlink bus, but it travels to more parts of the city and offers you the chance to see some of Edinburgh before you actually arrive.
Finally, you can also grab a taxi from outside the airport terminals. There are plenty of stands and the prices are reasonably affordable. Obviously this isn’t the cheapest option, but if you’re looking for speed and convenience then it’s the best way to go.
