Flights To Edinburgh

Do you have any idea what the capital of Scotland is? If you’re thinking it might be Glasgow, you’re wrong. It’s Edinburgh, a fantastic city that’s a perfect blend of medieval and modern. Check out the castle standing tall above the Old Town neighbourhood, then drink scotch on George Street. Browse Wotif’s amazing offers on cheap flights to Edinburgh and save tons of money for a kilt.

Getting Around Edinburgh

Now that you’ve landed at Edinburgh Airport (EDI), 9km from the central business district, hop in a taxi and go directly to your Edinburgh accommodation. Once you’ve unpacked your luggage and you’re ready to go exploring, use your own two feet for gallivanting about town. If you feel like walking as little as possible, the new Edinburgh Tramway is a great public transportation option.

When You Land…

If you find yourself on one of the flights to Edinburgh that lands in the morning, that’s great. It’s the perfect time for breakfast! Head to the “Royal Mile” in the Old Town neighbourhood and get a full breakfast consisting of eggs, baked beans, lorne sausage and tattie scones. Once you’re full, you’ll be ready to explore Edinburgh Castle, a medieval fortress that towers above the city.

Are you flying in after the sun has gone to bed? Head straight to the New Town neighbourhood and make new friends in the bars along George Street.

Live Like a Local

Use Wotif’s Edinburgh holiday packages and get a hotel in the Stockbridge district. Why? Because it’s the home of Raeburn Place, the main street in the neighbourhood where the first international rugby match was held. It’s also home to the Bailie Bar pub and the Stockbridge Pipe Band. What’s better than sipping on local scotch while listening to soothing bagpipes? Nothing.

We can’t think of a better holiday than one spent in a kilt and drinking scotch. Can you? That’s what we thought. Check out our unbelievable deals on Edinburgh flights and follow the distant sound of bagpipes all the way to the Highlands.
