Holyrood Park

When you think of Edinburgh, you may conjure up images of rowdy pubs, grassy hills and a sea of tartan, but this ancient city has so much more to offer. From the iconic Edinburgh Castle to the Royal Yacht Britannia, the regal Palace of Holyroodhouse and Scotland’s National Museum, this city has something for every traveller.

One of the most popular attractions in summer is the vast, windswept Holyrood Park. With its volcanic cliff faces, steep pathways and mini lochs, the park is an excellent introduction to Scotland’s natural landscape.

Loch Ness

Loch Ness is a lake in the beautiful Scottish Highlands that is surrounded by mountains and hills. It is around 23 miles southwest of the northernmost city of Inverness.

The water in Loch Ness is incredibly dark due to the peat that is carried from the surrounding mountains into the loch. This makes it impossible to see under the water, even when it’s the hottest day of summer!


The summer season in Stirling attracts a flurry of visitors who come to enjoy the music festivals, cultural events and fine climate. This is also the high season, so room rates will increase appropriately.

The city is situated on a large body of water (e.g., ocean, sea, or large lake) — we estimate the wide-area average surface temperature of that water using data from nearby weather stations.
