  • By chance, I found an amazing and quite adorable little park just next to the Royal Mile. Almost alone, I sat down listening only to the wind and the birds. Lovely!  more »

  • A quiet space in the city centre. It's always there as a quiet oasis no matter how busy the Royal Mile is itself.
  • Cosy corner just off the Royal Mile with nice gardens. Just great for a picnic.
  • Great for a wander for a few minutes to get off the hustle-bustle of the Royal Mile.

  • Beautiful Victorian garden that is quiet and off the beaten path; very few tourists!

Where to stay in Edinburgh

Edinburgh hides a maze of cobbled streets dotted with boutique hotels offering inexpensive rooms and outstanding restaurants. Many of the city's Gothic buildings house chic hotels with easy access to most of the city’s main tourist sites. For a uniquely Scottish experience, consider staying in the famous old town. Despite being in this historical district, many hotels here feature contemporary decor with lots of glass walls and muted color schemes. They’re also known for offering spacious rooms, comfortable beds, and restaurants serving classic European cuisine, with a modern Scottish twist.
