A stay in the Old Town during the summer months puts you within easy reach of the excitement of August's Edinburgh Festival Fringe and the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo. Soak up the atmosphere on Scotland's long, lingering summer sunsets with friends, or in the winter months find yourself surrounded by the dark, brooding mystery of ancient Edinburgh, with warm pubs inviting you to come in from the cold and enjoy Scottish hospitality.
