Christmas Shopping Edinburgh Short Breaks

Make your Christmas Shopping fun with a short break in Edinburgh

Combine Christmas Shopping with a visit to Edinburgh and enjoy the delights of the season in Scotland’s capital.  Craigwell Cottage is only a short walk from Edinburgh’s Royal Mile and Princes Street.  You will find a range of department stores and small shops to buy that ideal Christmas gift.  There are also great independent shops in quirky shopping streets such as Cockburn Street and Victoria Street, Edinburgh’s West End, Bruntsfield and Stockbridge.

The 2015 Street of Light in Edinburgh’s Royal Mile

Each year the Christmas Market takes over different parts of central Edinburgh – so you’ll find East Princes Street Gardens has a European flavour, while George Street has quality Scottish gifts to delight.   Everyone in Edinburgh knows that Christmas is just around the corner when the Dome puts up its Christmas decorations (they’re up already!)  The Light Night switch on this year happens on Sunday 19 November 2017 in the afternoon.
