Father’s Day is a very special day indeed and you don’t want to just do the same thing with your Dad. Why not treat him to a weekend in Edinburgh? We’ve compiled a list of fantastic things to do when spending Father’s Day in Edinburgh.
Things to Do – Spending Father’s Day in Edinburgh
Edinburgh Castle is a great place to start! With the castle’s rich heritage and broad history there is plenty for you and your Dad to explore and interact with!
If your Dad is more fitness-centric, take on a challenge and climb up onto Arthur’s Seat and look over the city. The climb isn’t too strenuous and rewards incredible views of “Auld Reekie.”
Does your Dad appreciate Scottish history? Why not send him off to the National War Museum of Scotland? Admission is included with the castle tickets so it would be a shame not to take advantage of it!
Seeking more architecture and culture? Send him off to the Dean Village to see the Old Mill Village. It’s definitely worth a wonder about, the buildings are well preserved and it is ideally situated next to the Leith Waters.
Father’s Day at The Dunstane
Of course, no trip to Edinburgh is complete without a slice of Scottish hospitality. Why not book your Dad in for a break at the Dunstane or treat him to an evening of Orcadian cuisine at our award-winning restaurant, the Skerries.
Choose from the Sunday Night Special offer as Father’s Day always falls on the third Sunday of June! With prices beginning from £90 per person, this lovely package offers one night in luxury accommodation with a complimentary upgrade to a deluxe. In addition to this, your Dad and his guest will be treated to dinner at Skerries to the value of £30 per person.
