Craigmore Guest House - Things to do in Edinburgh

Edinburgh Castle from Princes Street gardens

Edinburgh, the inspiring capital of Scotland, is an incredibly compact city making it easy for visitors to cover a lot of ground in a short space of time.

Edinburgh Castle dominates the city-centre skyline and from its walls you can look down on medieval lanes and stylish, sweeping terraces that hold over a thousand years of history and tradition.

There is so much to do in Edinburgh that fitting it all in will be your biggest challenge! We are only fifteen minutes from the city centre with regular buses every five minutes making sight-seeing very accessible.

By day, you can stroll through world-class art galleries and museums, take a tour on an open-top bus, indulge in some serious retail therapy in internationally renowned shops, or walk back in time to the historic Royal Mile.

The Royal Yacht Brittania - in Edinburgh

The Royal Yacht Britannia is a short bus trip to Ocean Terminal in the historic port of Leith and the Royal Botanic Gardens provides a beautiful walk on a nice Edinburgh day.

By night, you can choose from numerous restaurants, theatres, cafes, clubs and bars creating a vibrant atmosphere for you to enjoy. The Edinburgh Festival and the Royal Military Tatoo are held in the summer months and attract leading performers from around the world.
