Places to Stay Near Edinburgh Castle

Sunday, 30th June 2019

Edinburgh has many world-famous attractions, but nothing quite compares to Edinburgh Castle. Perched high upon a hill, this historic 12th-century fortress sits proudly above the city’s skyline.


The Castle is well worth a visit and its location at the end of the Royal Mile is perfect for exploring the rest of the city. We’ve put together our favourite luxury Edinburgh apartments which are just a hop, skip and a jump from this breathtaking landmark.
