What's On August/September 2018

As always, there is plenty to see and do in Edinburgh and September is no exception. Whether you want to raise some money for charity while taking in the sights of our wonderful city or learn more about the animals of the ocean, we’ve got you covered.

 

Kiltwalk

On the 16th of September join thousands of others in a charity walk through the city as you show off your finest tartan. While raising money for a charity of your choice, the Kiltwalk will take you on a tour of the city’s most iconic landmarks making this the ideal event for newcomers to Edinburgh. With options of 5, 15.5 and 24-mile routes, why not get together with your flat mates and enjoy a great day out, not to mention a great night too as registration includes admission to the after party at Murrayfield.

Edinburgh Doors Open Days

This unique event on 29th and 30th September gives you access to some of the fascinating buildings in Edinburgh that are normally closed to the public. Not only is admission free, many of the locations offer tours and exhibitions so that you can learn more about the history and architecture of the city. Perfect for those looking to experience some of the capital's culture. Of course this festival is not limited to Edinburgh as it extends to all of Scotland so if you would like to explore further afield before the semester begins this may be the event for you.
