Keeping Active In Edinburgh

Edinburgh is a city that thrives on activity – it is, after all, built on two extinct volcanoes (the castle sits on one; Arthur’s seat crowns the other.) Whether you have booked accommodation here for pleasure or business, you have made the right choice by choosing Edinburgh serviced apartments. Instead of the usual dull hotel fitness gym, you can explore the wide blue yonder – there are plenty of activities to get the pulse racing.

For example, we at Serviced City Pads have apartments that are ideally situated to take advantage of the numerous walking tours on offer. You can choose from history rambles, Witches and Ghosts walks. Some of the best ghost walks start from St Giles Churchyard. History-and-Mystery buffs should try visiting Edinburgh’s fascinating Underground City, which recreates the life of the subterranean community which once lived there – complete with bow-fronted shops.

For the more energetic, a climb to the top of Arthur’s seat will blow the cobwebs away. Others prefer to scale the Scott Monument – 287 narrow spiral steps which are rewarded with some superb city views. Staying firmly on Edinburgh’s favourite subject of “yet more hills”, an even more breathtaking experience can be gained from climbing Jacob’s Ladder.

If you’ve rented accomodation in Edinburgh with extreme activities in mind, retail therapy isn’t the only option. EICA Ratho, a disused quarry with one of the largest indoor climbing walls in the world, also boasts an aerial assault course – suspended 100 foot above ground level.

Whether you have booked Edinburgh luxury serviced apartments for business or pleasure, we at Serviced City Pads guarantee the experience will take your breath away.
