Although smaller than Glasgow, Edinburgh is the capital of Scotland, and well worth a visit. Edinburgh really comes to life for three weeks in August, when the Edinburgh International Festival takes place. Comprising a military tattoo in the Castle, other events around town, and the famous Edinburgh “fringe”, it is not to be missed! We have chosen the timings for CECE to allow you to ‘pop through’ for the festival.
Edinburgh becomes very busy (and expensive) for these three weeks, and the smart people stay in Glasgow, and commute through on the frequent, inexpensive train service. Which is exactly what you plan, right?
