Stay at Eastside for cosy fires, winter walks and an eclectic mix of entertainment!

What's on around Edinburgh in February?

Look forward to the 6 Nations rugby, evenings out at the theatre, animation, puppetry, film festivals, portrait prizes and Valentines Day. The days start to lengthen, the snowdrops start to raise their heads and the cold crisp mornings tempt you out to explore the hills.
