The Old Town is the name for the original and oldest part of Scotland’s capital, which naturally evolved around the fortified Edinburgh Castle. The castle sits at the top of what is known as the Royal Mile, which leads on a downward slope to Cheval Abbey Strand Apartments at Holyrood and the Palace of Holyroodho­use, the official residence of the British Monarch when in Scotland. Constructi­on of the Palace as we see it today was largely complete by the late 17th century, but it is believed monastic buildings existed on the site from as early as the late 12th century.

Also adjacent to Cheval Abbey Strand Apartments is the Scottish Parliament, which opened in 2004 and is free to visit, and Dynamic Earth, a family-friendly futuristic science and nature attraction. If you are planning on exploring the city’s green spaces, Holyrood Park is only moments from your front door, leading up to Arthur’s Seat, the highest point of what is an extinct volcano.

It’s about a 10-minute walk to reach the main Old Town area where you’ll find an extensive range of restaurant­s, bars, shops and other attraction­s guaranteed to keep you busy during your visit. You will also not struggle to find somewhere to sample Scotland’s arguably most famous export, whisky.
