The second-largest city in Scotland after Glasgow, Edinburgh consists of an ancient Old Town and nineteenth-century New Town. Together they have been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site and have some of the most exciting historic and cultural attractions in the UK. These include Edinburgh Castle and the Palace of Holyrood House (the Queen’s official residence in Scotland). However, the Scottish capital is also well known for its proximity to the wild landscapes of the region, making is the perfect place to get campervan hire in Edinburgh.

The Cramond foreshore may not have the international name of Arthur’s seat and city views of Calton Hill. But it does offer some of the best walks in the area.

Likewise, the Pentland Hills are perfect for a picnic.

Most major European national airlines have flights to Edinburgh. It is also a significant hub for budget airlines including Ryanair and easyJet. Flight times to continental Europe are as little as two hours.

The city’s main railway station is Edinburgh Waverley. It sees trains arrive and depart from right across Scotland. It is also connected with London’s King’s Cross Station on the east coast mainland. Journey times to London average just four hours.

Parking charges in the centre of the city, such as on George Street or Queen Street, cost close to £5 per hour.
