With many cities to choose from there is something for everyone. The main attractions and place to visit is Edinburgh, with such wonderful places to see, such as Edinburgh Castle, Princes Street and even Dynamic Earth all within a few square mile radius.
If a city is not your preference then whey not try out the many beaches, camping and caravanning sites spread out throughout the country. With many sites such as Dornoch, Narin or even St. Andrews. With more than 50 beaches in Scotland receiving awards for their cleanliness, water quality and safety any previous thoughts should now be put to rest, and with so many there will one near you.
If the beach isn’t your thing then why not try visiting the a Lake and staying in the popular caravan locations. Whether it be remote or close to on-site shops and pubs. This choice proves to be very popular during the summer period with with many families making sure they making full use of all the fun things to do, such as canoeing, mountain biking and horse riding to name a few.
Lastly, Scotland offers a vast and varied amount of festivals during the summer months. Many of which people travel all across the country to visit. Particularly music festivals that have created a large following over the years, such as T in the Park, RockNess, but beware most music festivals take place rain or shine so remember to pack appropriately and that camping for several days may be required unless the festival itself is situated near any B&B or hotels.
If camping or music festivals are not your thing then why not just visit Edinburgh during the festival periods, with so much on offer from the Film Festival, Edinburgh Fringe Festival and even the renowned Edinburgh Military Tattoo. With thousands of performers and shows there will be an act for everyone’s tastes, and created a buzz within the city that must be experiences. Not only during shows but within the street, where it is common to find many street performers.
So make the most out of your summer this year regardless of a trip for the family to spend some time together and break from taking a normal holiday where there will be a period of strain when trying to save. Also, try staying in any of the wonderful hotels in Edinburgh that will surely increase the diversity and history that such a great city can offer and possibly just make a short getaway with everything on your doorstep that can make your summer a wonderful one, and who know it may just be sunny this year.
