What's on around Edinburgh in June?
Visit Edinburgh this month for whisky, jazz & blues, gardening, racing and the Royal Highland Show!
The Royal Highland Show is a real highlight this month. We love visiting the shows huge cattle shed to meet the best of all breeds as well as the fluffy Highland favourites. Next door you can watch the Scottish clydesdale horses, such gentle giants, being prepared for the ring and pulling their brewers dray in teams of six.
Children will love the Shetland ponies and the cheeky goats who thrive on the attention and the odd nibble of clothing.
