Edinburgh, the world’s leading festival city,  is an easy day trip from our homestay in Crieff, by car or public transport.

August is the biggest festival month, with 5 festivals taking place:

  • Edinburgh International  Festival
  • Edinburgh Festival Fringe
  • Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo
  • Edinburgh Art Festival
  • Edinburgh Book Festival

There are plenty of other festivals to enjoy – why not come for the Scottish International Storytelling Festival in late October?  Or for the International Science Festival in April? A great way to improve your English.

The most famous of them all is the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.  The biggest Arts Festival in the world.  It is basically 3 weeks of every kind of show you can imagine (all kinds of music, theatre, magic, circus, comedy, cabaret, speeches, musical theatre, etc etc), crammed into every possible venue in the City, over 3 weeks in August.  The streets are full of street performers and crowds of arts-loving people from all over the world.  We go every year, and we’d love to take you with us.
