Edinburgh is a delightful city, steeped in history and full of interesting things to see and do. Nestled in the hills near Scotland’s coast, the capital city is densely packed with attractions. Because it’s such a desirable destination, if you want to visit during the summer months you should arrange your trip well in advance. Flights and rooms book up early and prices will be at their peak. During the winter months, you may have to deal with bone-chilling damp and daily high temperatures ranging from 43 – 44 degrees Fahrenheit, but the good news is that fewer tourists visit, so you can find good deals on accommodation and cheap flights to Edinburgh. The shoulder seasons of spring and fall could be a good compromise, with relatively warmer weather and a modicum of tourists. Plan your trip in the shoulder seasons and enjoy either the spring blossoms or the fall bloom of heather on the Scottish hillsides.
