Alternatively, also only a few minutes from the house is Holyrood Park or you can picnic, play tennis or do yoga at the Meadows, Edinburgh’s largest and most scenic park.

You'll love exploring the city and the many unique shops, cool hangouts, outstanding restaurants (many vegetarian), cafes and pubs right at your doorstep. There are also a Lidl, Sainsbury's, Coop and Tesco within blocks.

Edinburgh is ranked the UK's greenest city and people are exceptionally nice and friendly. Also, it's fairly inexpensive which means your EUR/GBP/USD/Ether/Bitcoins(extremely useful around here!) go a long way.

For day trips by car or bus (there are daily bus tours), some great places to visit are: Glasgow, St Andrews, Stirling Castle and Loch Lomond. There are also tours to Inverness, Loch Ness and the Highlands as well as to Isle of Skye.
