Camping & Glamping in Edinburgh with Cosy Outdoors

Scotland's historic capital city is chock-full of iconic attractions, culture, UNESCO World Heritage Sites and fun leisure activities, so whatever you enjoy doing on holiday, Edinburgh has got you covered. 

Opting for some camping or glamping as your holiday accommodation in Edinburgh is a great way to explore this metropolitan city while still having a peaceful site full of natural beauty to return to after a busy day of sightseeing. Light your campfire, pour yourself a glass of bubbly and talk about everything you’ve experienced that day with your travel companions under the twinkling stars. 

Things to do while glamping in Edinburgh 

This historic capital city has plenty of attractions for all ages and interests. The National Museum of Scotland, Royal Yacht Britannia, Edinburgh Castle and Holyrood Palace are all great places to visit for those interested in Scottish history and the Royal Family, while the Royal Botanic Gardens is the optimal destination for a picnic on sunny days. 

It’s not difficult to enjoy stunning views across the entire city by climbing up one of Edinburgh’s many hills: Arthur’s Seat and Calton Hill are favourites among tourists and Edinburghers alike, while Corstorphine Hill, Blackford Hill and Craiglockhart Hill all offer a slightly different angle of the city and far fewer tourists. Or, for a less strenuous experience, simply take the lift to the rooftop terrace in Harvey Nichols and enjoy a glass of fizz with the gorgeous view!

Some family favourites include Edinburgh Zoo and various leisure venues offering adventurous pursuits like paintballing, rock climbing and laser tag. And when it comes to eating out and drinks, you're spoilt for choice, with a huge number of award-winning restaurants, charming cafes, posh cocktail bars and elegant tea rooms.

Edinburgh - The City of Festivals

With a head-spinning number of different festivals, fireworks displays and other celebrations held every year, you'll be spoilt for choice when it comes to exploring culture in Scotland’s capital city.

Edinburgh hosts more than twenty festivals every year, such as the world-famous Edinburgh International Festival and the Festival Fringe, the Military Tattoo and the Edinburgh Book Festival. Combined, these festivals bring the world to Scotland, with countless influential figures within the worlds of theatre, music, comedy, film, literature and art performing in the city every summer.

During the winter months, there's just as much to get involved in, with a multitude of festivals celebrating topics as diverse as science, storytelling and short films. Not to mention Edinburgh's legendary Christmas market and Hogmanay celebrations!
