4 festivals in 4 months – March to June Festivals in Scotland


A brief list of festivals happening in Scotland from March to June. 

…Only a few options, a small part of what is happening in our amazing Scotland. If you know of any other events, comment or email us, and share the news.

And if you do not live in Edinburgh or Glasgow, I hope this post will inspire you to visit Scotland. 

I am planning to publish a post on accommodation in Edinburgh and Glasgow, but until then, have a look at VoucherCodes. Hotels.com are often posting deals, and we have used them in the past.

#AccommodationInScotland #VisitScotland

Accommodation in Edinburgh and Glasgow may look tricky, but it does not have to be. The many options we have for accommodation are offering a wide variety in style, price and geograohical coverage. 

And because I am a great fan of offers I’d advise you to have a look at VoucherCodes and search for Hotels.com. 

AirBnB has often been our prefered choice when arranging accommodation for city breaks.
