Things to do in Edinburgh

Our retirement villages in Edinburgh are in prime locations so that the iconic sights of the city are always only a short bus ride away. History buffs will enjoy Edinburgh’s most famous street, the Royal Mile, which connects Edinburgh Castle and the Palace of Holyroodhouse. Meanwhile art lovers can admire world famous works at the Scottish National Gallery and the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art.

Fashionistas will flock to the up-market stores in George Street and Multrees Walk, while foodies will love the range of cafes, bars and restaurants along Princes Street — the Ivy on the Square, Edinburgh is temptingly close by. If you enjoy cooking you can pick up fresh produce at the Edinburgh Farmers' Market, or head to the weekly Stockbridge Market for local butchers, baked goods, global cuisine and artisan gifts.
