The Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh
The Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh was established in 1670 and during the 20th century acquired three Regional Gardens –the mountainous Benmore in Argyll;Dawyck in the wooded hills of the Scottish Borders and Logan on the Gulf Stream-warmed southern peninsula of Dumfries &Galloway.
Together they represent one of the world’s largest living collections of plants.
A majestic landmark which dominates the capital city’s skyline just as it has dominated Scotland’s long and colourful history. Edinburgh Castle is the best known and most visited of Historic Scotland’s buildings. Perched on an extinct volcano and offering stunning views, this instantly recognisable fortress is a powerful national symbol, and part of Edinburgh’s World Heritage Site. A rich mix of architectural styles reflects the castle’s complex history and role as both stronghold and seat of Kings. The tiny St Margaret’s Chapel, Edinburgh’s oldest building, dates from the 1100s.
The Royal Yacht Britannia
The Royal Yacht Britannia was home to Her Majesty The Queen and the Royal Family for over 40 years, sailing over 1,000,000 miles around the world. Now berthed in Edinburgh, you can follow in the footsteps of Royalty to discover the heart and soul of this most special of Royal residences.

Palace of Holyrood
The Queen is in residence at the Palace of Holyroodhouse during Holyrood week, which usually takes place from the end of June to the beginning of July. Then the Scottish variant of the Royal Standard of the United Kingdom is flown, and the Royal Company of Archers forms Her Majesty’s ceremonial bodyguard.
At the start of The Queen’s visit, the Palace forecourt is transformed into a crowded and colourful parade ground, where 700 guests stand to watch the enactment of an ancient ceremony, the Presentation of the Keys of the City of Edinburgh. On her arrival in the forecourt, The Queen is presented with a red-velvet cushion, on which rests the great key of the city. It is handed to The Queen by the Lord Provost, who welcomes Her Majesty formally and pledges her the city’s loyalty. Her Majesty then hands back the key for safekeeping.
The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh entertain around 8,000 guests from all walks of Scottish life during Holyrood week. Her Majesty holds Investitures in the Great Gallery, audiences in the Morning Drawing Room and a Garden Party. The Queen also carries out a wide range of official engagements elsewhere in Scotland.
The Queen received His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI at Holyroodhouse during The Pope’s official visit to the UK in September 2010. The gift presented by His Holiness to Her Majesty, a facsimile of the Lorsch Gospels, is on display at the Palace.
Prince Charles resides at Holyroodhouse for one week a year, carrying out official duties as The Duke of Rothesay.
The Royal Family stayed at Holyroodhouse at the time of the wedding of Zara Phillips, The Queen’s granddaughter, to Mike Tindall in Canongate Kirk on 30 July 2011.

If you’re looking for fun, food, films, or great fitness facilities and somewhere to take friends and family then you’ve come to the right place. Situated in the heart of the city centre, OMNi is Edinburgh’s premier leisure and entertainment destination.
Princes Street Gardens
West Princes Street Gardens is the larger of the two tracts of green space (the other being East Princes Street Gardens) that run parallel to Princes Street in the heart of the city. The gardens were formerly the Nor’ Loch, a body of water that provided added defence on the North face of Edinburgh Castle. The famously stinky loch was drained and ornamental gardens put in their place from 1816 onwards.
West Princes Street Gardens, the larger of the two sections of gardens, extend West from the Mound to St John’s Church at the West End of Princes Street. The hilly gardens are bounded to South by the railway line between Edinburgh’s two train stations, Waverley and Haymarket. A small footbridge across the railway allows you to watch trains passing back and forth and cross to the Castle Gardens which wrap around the Edinburgh Castle rock and connect with the Castle Esplanade by way of a steep, zigzag path.
As well as a good place to look up to the castle perched imposingly on its rugged, volcanic rock, Princes Street Gardens provide a scenic route for traversing the city centre East-West.
There is also a children’s play park in the West End and look out for the famous floral clock display on the staircase at the entrance to West Princes Street Garden at the foot of the Mound. The floral clock is not just a pretty face. It’s a reliable time-keeper too.

Comfortable hotel, lovely location –
We enjoyed our stay very much. The staff were friendly and welcoming, the room comfortable and the breakfast very good. It’s in a lovely location, away from the centre but with easy access via the excellent bus service.Only slight negative is that, although advertising parking on the website, this turns out to be paid on-street parking.This wouldn’t stop us staying again though.
