Scotland's capital, Edinburgh is famed all over the world as a mecca for arts and culture lovers, and boasts one of the most dramatic castles and beautiful architecture in the world.
There are hotels in Edinburgh to suit every budget, from the low-cost hostels around Cowgate (including Budget Backpackers Edinburgh, consistently voted one of the best hostels in the world) to the Witchery by the Castle, one of the most luxurious hotels in Scotland. If you are looking for a comfortable hotel experience without breaking the bank, then the areas around the two rail stations, Waverley and Haymarket are the places to go offering everything you could need in a hotel and within easy walking distance from the city centre.
You don't need to a lot to have a great day or night out in the Scottish capital. Edinburgh is famous the world over for its massive summer arts festival, which completely takes over the city during August. There are street performers, free shows and film screening and countless other amazing free things to see and do during the Edinburgh Festival, so if you manage to get some accommodation sorted early, then you can have a great, cheap festival experience. Even when the festival isn't on, Edinburgh is one of the best locations for a cheap holiday in the UK, with the National Museum of Scotland, The Writers' Museum and numerous parks and gardens around the city free to enter.
