You’ll bust out of the airport (Bruce Willis style) and explore some of Edinburgh with your Edinburgh host as you wait for your connecting flight.

Regardless of how long or short, your layover is, there’s no need to waste it sitting around. You’re in Edinburgh after all, and it’s your duty to explore it as fully as you can.

Swap in airport food for some fresh market produce, the lounge for Edinburgh Castle, or stretch your legs in the beautiful Holyrood Park.

On a limited time excursion, you might want to climb Arthur’s Seat, a hilltop that affords a stunning panoramic view of the city and overall impression of Edinburgh’s green natural surrounds.

Perhaps you’d like to wander through Old Town, discovering its come-hither stores, quaint coffee shops and exciting vintage stores.If your layover is in the evening, there can be no better stop off that a traditional Scottish pub for a tumbler of the highland’s finest whiskey.

Just beware, don’t order Irish whiskey, whatever you do! Just kidding. Or are we…?
