Please note that The Hairy Coo does not book pre-tour or post- tour accommodation in Edinburgh and you should book your own in advance of your visit.

Edinburgh is as one of the most popular destinations in Europe and as such, hosts many Hotels, Backpacker Hostels, AirBnb and Guest Houses. There is something for everyone and every budget. As it is such a hot destination at the moment, it is advisable to book well in advance if you are visiting during a peak time, such as August (when we host the Edinburgh International Festival and Fringe) or late December when we host the ‘Hogmanay’ festivities for New Years Eve. 

All of our tours depart from the Lawnmarket/Royal Mile in Edinburgh’s Old Town. So if you’re visiting Edinburgh simply as a stop-over before joining up with our tour, it is advisable to book accommodation close to the Royal Mile. However, if you’re spending more time in Edinburgh you might wish to consider staying a little further from the city centre to get better value for money.
