Edinburgh Festival

Edinburgh Festival and of course the Internationally renowned Fringe Festival make Edinburgh one of the most popular city destinations in Europe. This three week festival which runs from early August to the beginning of September, has over the years grown to become the worlds largest festival of its kind and with the ever popular fringe festival, you cannot visit Edinburgh at this time of year without becoming involved.

Edinburgh's streets become open air theatres, particularly in the Royal Mile and the Princess street area. Pubs, clubs, community halls, schools, and parks all become venues for the fringe to compliment the international opera companies and orchestras which have control over the larger venues. The atmosphere is quite incredible and with so many shows from serious plays to comedy stand up, everybody's tastes are catered for.

Although accommodation directly within the city and close surrounding areas are expensive and hard to come by, most other prices are incredibly good value for money with many shows free or a token price. If you are in or around the Lomond National Park at this time of year then why not arrange a day out to Edinburgh.
