The seasons are shifting, Edinburgh’s trees are turning red and gold, and the Ba’ Bar fireside has never been so appealing.

Edinburgh throughout the year is an exceptional city to visit, whether you’re looking to embrace the local culture by visiting the endless amounts of attractions, see some of our fantastic art galleries, experience the exceptional cuisine or a combination of all of the above, Edinburgh is the city for you.

Unfortunately, as I’m sure we’re all aware, the weather during Autumn in Edinburgh can be somewhat unpredictable, however, there is no lack of indoor activities when it comes to those rainy days. On the plus side, Edinburgh is always beautiful, regardless of the climate.

Art Galleries

For a start, Edinburgh is an art lover’s dream. National galleries cover all major periods and works while small private ones bring new talent to the fore.

The five Edinburgh galleries of the National Galleries of Scotland are:

  • National Gallery of Scotland
  • Royal Scottish Academy Building (joined to the National Gallery via the Weston Link)
  • Scottish National Portrait Gallery
  • Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art
  • Dean Gallery
  • National Gallery of Scotland

How about a special tour of Edinburgh?

Here’s the plan: rendezvous at the Dunstane Houses; we’ll hook you up with Rowan and Andy, and they’ll whisk you off in their motors for a two-hour tour of Edinburgh. You’ll go off the beaten track, you’ll clock the sights as the locals see them, and you’ll come back with a few tales to tell. This, as it were, is an inside job. Click here for more.

Edinburgh’s rich literary history

Part of visiting Edinburgh isn’t just about seeing the sights, eating and drinking, Scotland is a country rich in history and culture, plus much, much more.

Scotland is known around the world as the country that exported some of the best inventors like Alexander Graham Bell, top musicians like Lulu and The Proclaimers and of course writers! If you’d like to read more about the rich literary history in Edinburgh then please see here.

Here at The Dunstane

There’s always plenty to do in Edinburgh. We’ve only just scratched the surface of just some of the things you can do whilst in the Scottish capital. To mark the onset of autumn (and give you an excuse to linger a little longer by the fire), we’re offering one night free when you book a three-night stay or more. So, sit back, relax and cosy up for the evening – that’s what autumns made for, after all.

If you need more inspiration with things to do, then please don’t hesitate to get in touch, for now, please click here to see our unmissable Autumn offer!
