Trip Report Long Weekend in Scotland for Edinburgh Fringe

Jump to last reply

Just got back from five days in Scotland split between Glasgow and Edinburgh, catching the Fringe festival in the latter.

For those who are not familiar with Fringe, it's the biggest arts and culture festival in the whole wide world, consisting of a month of theatre, comedy, dance, music, street performance, food, art and craft markets, photographic exhibitions, circus, cabaret, burlesque, and storytelling. There are also gin, whisky and wine tastings, spa treatments and buskers. Phew!

Around 800 events this year are free, and the rest range in price from circa £5, up to £50 or so for premium events encompassing food and several hours entertainment. There's also a half price ticket hut that opens once the festival has kicked off.

I'll do my standard 1-2 posts per day, hopefully giving you a heads-up on what might be worth seeing if you are off to Edinburgh this month, and also some accommodation and transport tips.

Pix first to whet your appetite!
