You’ll wrap up warm and spend time exploring the enchanted winter wonderland which Edinburgh becomes over Christmas time with one of our Edinburgh hosts - although we do find that mulled wine or a wee dram of whisky does a good job of warming us up too.

You’ll discover the historic cobbled streets of the Old Town draped in twinkling lights, the magical Scottish Christmas markets and Christmas trees fit to dazzle Santa Claus himself.

Browse stalls selling beautiful homemade gifts, sample some tasty festive treats and warm up with a hot chocolate, spiced cider or that wee dram of whisky!

You could stroll through Princes Street Gardens and enjoy the light displays and adorned trees, or even go ice skating.

You could also let your host take you to one of their favorite local pubs and settle in next to the fire after your shopping extravaganza.

It’s called the most wonderful time of year for a reason.
