Five Ideas For Dating in Edinburgh


With its grand Georgian architecture and a multitude of classic, historical locations for dating, Edinburgh’s most popular attractions, from Arthur’s Seat to The Royal Mile, may well hold the key to capturing your dating partner’s heart. Read this guide to some of the best places for dating in Edinburgh and you’ll be off to a great start.

The Royal Mile

The backbone of the 16th century Old Town, and still containing many buildings from this era, the Royal Mile is ideal for dating in Edinburgh. The stretch is packed with shops and eateries, and there are many bars to choose from where you and your Edinburgh dating partner can relax over a single malt or and Edinburgh Ale and get to know each other better in a suitably beautiful and grand location.

Edinburgh Castle

The Old Town is also home to the magnificent Edinburgh Castle, which dominates the Edinburgh skyline from its position at the top of the beautiful volcanic Castle Rock. The site is truly historical, and the perfect place to take your dating partner if they are interested in the history of Scotland, having been inhabited by humans as far back as the 9th century BC. The castle itself has been here since the 12th century and is now Scotland’s number one paid tourist attraction.

Edinburgh Festival

If you’re lucky enough to be in Scotland’s capital for the Edinburgh Festival, you will be utterly spoilt for choice for live arts events in the city to go to with your Edinburgh dating partner. The Edinburgh Festival is a collective name for a number of different festivals which take place at the same time in the city, including the Edinburgh Fringe festival, the largest arts festival in the world and the starting place for many of the world’s most renowned comedians and other performers.

Ghost tours

The visibly challenged residents of Edinburgh are one of the city’s most popular tourist attractions. Dramatic, historical, walking ghost tours, which you can undertake at night time if you choose, will allow you and your Edinburgh dating partner get a taste of some of the most fascinating history of the city with a characterful twist. If you or your dating partner are too frightened (or cynical) to take on one of these tours, you could instead go on a traditional historical tour of the city.

Arthur’s Seat

Arthur’s seat is not an actual seat but the name of the main peak of the group of hills to the east of Edinburgh’s city centre. The journey you will take to get there is a good way to get to know your dating partner, as it involves a bit of a walk and a short climb, without being too strenuous for a relaxed and easygoing time when dating in Edinburgh. When you arrive at Arthur’s Seat, supposedly named in connection with the many legends of King Arthur, you and your dating partner will be amply rewarded for your trouble with the stunning views across Edinburgh and the surrounding area which have made this spot such a popular Edinburgh dating location.
