The streets and gardens of Edinburgh city centre are ablaze with festive cheer during the Christmas season as Scotland’s capital plays host to two superb Christmas Markets. Add to this a visit to Glasgow, the country’s other great city, and a weekend of fun, food and festive shopping awaits!

Edinburgh’s attractions are already world-renowned, but at Christmas time the city really sparkles, with an ice rink and fairground in Princes Street Gardens as well as its impressive markets and the enduring appeal of the big-name shops and department stores on Princes Street itself. The German Christmas Market is one of the centerpieces of the Edinburgh festive season. Situated on the Mound Precinct and close to the National Gallery of Scotland, it is a continental feast for the eyes with illuminated wooden cabins laden with hand blown baubles, toys, glassware and candles. The German vendors also sell a tempting selection of sausages, dumplings, liver pate, puddings and breads, as well as the inevitable gluhwein, so make sure you have a little spare room around your waistband before you go! Once you have had your fill, you may wish to soak up the fairground atmosphere for a while before making your way across the Gardens to the Highland Village Christmas Market. Here you will find food, drink, clothing and jewellery from all over Scotland – the very best of local and national craft, all in one scenic location.

To round off your visit, enjoy a well-deserved early evening dinner in one of Edinburgh’s many eating places before the coach arrives to take you to your hotel for your overnight stay, ready for your shopping visit the next day.
