Edinburgh is a beautiful city of contrast with its aged buildings lined with bright flowers and green parks infused with bagpipe songs. It’s very much submersed in culture, especially along the Royal Mile where, there is plenty to explore in the way of dark history and royalty. Whether you’re descending beneath the city into the once inhabited underground or hiking up Castle Hill, you will find Edinburgh is full of great things to see and do for the solo traveler.
Here are my top three choices for Airbnb listings in Edinburgh, perfectly located along the Royal Mile and near St. Andrews Square, and just minutes from the train station. They are all private rooms in homes which offer a budget-friendly place to stay and the opportunity to ask residents about local favorites and travel tips!
