Things To Do

A truly international city so exciting and diverse that it is impossible to sum it up in a few sentences! At any time of year Edinburgh is a great city to visit.


The city of Edinburgh is often voted by its residents as ‘the best place to live in Britain'. Dramatic contours, long surviving buildings, breathtaking views, green hills, wide water, sensational nightlife and a manageable sized city centre have encouraged a truly cosmopolitan population that has produced a diverse cultural identity. The city is a thrilling place!


Culminating in August's festival it offers year-round, sophisticated entertainment in hundreds of small performance venues. Edinburgh castle, King Arthur's seat and a labyrinth of tunnels and dungeons provide similar excitement for history buffs whilst those simply looking for a place to shop in fine style will not be disappointed either. There is a constant, inexplicable air of romance within this ancient city that entices visitors to return to this beautiful place time and again.


Edinburgh’s massive worldwide appeal and popularity naturally means that those seeking short breaks or accommodation in Edinburgh will often find it scarce and expensive. Not at Glenalmond House, where true quality and understated luxury combine with great value  to provide the perfect Edinburgh guest house.
