Apartment to rent and Weather ???

by Clodagh

Can anyone recommend a nice city centre (or website with) apartment to rent for 3 nights at the end of February. With about 5 bedrooms.
Also can anyone tell me what kind of weather to expect at that time of year so i know what to pack.
Any help would be appreciated.
Clo.

Edinburgh is generally a lot drier than the West coast of Scotland but that is not saying much - temperature wise anything up to 10C or the low 50s F is not unheard of but not too late for frosts either so - unpredictable ! - bear in mind the castle/ Royal Mile are at height so can be blowy, be sure to take scarf & gloves and whatever else. Best check the 5 day forecast at bbc.c.o.uk/weather before you go

Clothes you can layer for warmth, warm and waterproof coat/jacket(s), comfortable walking shoes (sports shoes/trainers ok but not very warm/waterproof), warm socks (or wear two thin pairs), hat/scarf/gloves/umbrella.

think you will struggle to get 5 beds in one place. try www.visitscotland.com but dont book through them as they are are very rarely the cheapest option, go direct to the establishment itself. If you search under serviced apartments you should get some good options.

These have 2 large apartments in the West End.

Here's a few links for other companies that have several apartments in the same location so you could rent a 3 bed and 2 bed apartment to meet your needs.

Travel Tips for Edinburgh

The Castle is also a working...

by Sharrie

The Castle is also a working military establishment being the headquarters of the Scottish Division.

Look out for the most famous cannon in Scotland - the Mons Meg: A massive 15th century bombard reputed to be able to fire a cannonball as far as 1.5 miles.
The One O'clock Gun fired at 1 pm everyday (except Sunday). This is a tradition for visitors to check their watches. Origin being for sailing ships in the Firth of Forth to check their chronometers by training a telescope on the castle.

Or no tartan at all

by wrongbus

Howie Nicholsby runs a company called 21st Century Kilts above his father’s more tradtional kilt shop in the Royal Mile and has been caused a stir over the last few years with an eye-catching catwalk collection featuring kilts in imitation leather, in velvet polka dots, denim, black wool and, most daringly, see-through pink PVC. Robbie Williams has worn one, Ewan MacGregor too. Howie says “It’s about men feeling comfortable with their masculinity and Scots being at ease with their identity.” Then he whips out a bizarre polyester snakeskin kilt which would have a man thrown into the dungeons of Edinburgh Castle if he wore it on the ramparts. He has lowered the height of his kilts so they now rest on the hip and has added secret pockets for car keys and a cell phone. He is even prepared to dispense with the traditional sporran, the purse which hangs down on a belt round the waist, in favour of a sort of Scottish bum bag/fanny pack. Though the thought of wearing some of his outfits might make even the Chippendales blush, the most controversial of all of Howie’s kilts to date has probably been the one decorated with dozens of red, white and blue Union Flagss. Imagine a kilt, the symbol of Highland separatist rebellion, decorated with the flag of the hated union. Wars have been started for less.
If you fancy a kilt with a difference, this is the place to start.

Prepare for wind, clouds, and rain

by Minstrelette

Arthur's Seat is a fun hike on an easy zig-zagging trail, but the closer you get to the top, the stronger weather you will have. We almost made it to the top, but the wind and hail and the fact that no one else was around told us that we should probably head back down. Be prepared for colder temperatures as well. In June, I wore a t-shirt, medium-weight rain coat, and a hat and was on the chilly side of comfortable. Arthur's Seat is definitely worth doing if you're in Edinburgh. I found it a magical experience.

The Grandness without the Price!!

by huwhit about JD Wetherspoons at "THE STANDING ORDER"

This is one of the hundreds of Wetherspoon pubs in Britain that offer really cheap grog with farly good pub food that is moderatley priced.

The crowd is an eclectic mix of oldies and youngies there for a cheap good time in amazing surroundings.

The building used to house a bank and so the interior is truly grand so it is really ok just to go in and have a look to see some amazing desing.

This place is a must for travellers on a budget for a good night out and a decent cheap feed. Relaxed
