Alternatively, head north on your journey and immerse yourself in the diverse shopping, vibrant nightlife and unique history of Edinburgh. If you stay at our Edinburgh Central hotel then you’ll be in the perfect spot to soak up what this city has to offer. Edinburgh Castle is only 2 miles down the road, along the famous Royal Mile, and Edinburgh Zoo is 5 miles away.
