You will be extremely lucky to find anything in Edinburgh for £45pn in July!! You might need to look further out at Linlithgow/Falkirk and commute in to Edinburgh, about 20mins by train.

The zoo is a big disappointment, the animals look very sad.

A wander down the royal mile is always good for tourists and Chamber St museum is excellent (and free!).

Go to the castle early morning to avoid the queues.

Highly recommend a ghost tour or Mary Kings Close.

Climb Arthur's Seat.

If you like Gin, the Edinburgh Gin distillery tours are supposed to be good, although you'll need to book in advance they book up quickly.

A trip out to Linlithgow Palace or Craigmiller Castle if you like that sort of thing.

I am in Edinburgh right now, staying in rooms just off the Royal Mile. The room is expensive and very basic, but the location is brilliant.

Mary King's close is worth a visit, so are the botanical gardens and Royal yacht Britannia. I found the castle itself underwhelming and very crowded, although the views are spectacular. We haven't been able to see and do everything, but have enjoyed our trip.
