What’s On in Edinburgh August 2012

August in Edinburgh is buzzing with activity. All sorts of bars, eateries and venues pop up for the festival making the city full of surprises for even the experienced Edinburgh traveler. Great places to visit for a festival atmosphere are in abundance but here, from a locals perspective, are some of the best.

The Pleasance courtyard is always a lively venue with bars and outdoor seating.  It looks magical in the evening with fairy lights and the obligatory umbrellas in case of rain. With bustling bars and sizzling BBQs this is a great place to get into the festival spirit with predominantly comedy venues surrounding the courtyard and box office for last minute bookings.
