November starts to get a lot cooler with frosty, winter mornings, early evenings and spectacular sunsets. Go hill walking on a clear crisp day with views to the Forth bridges and beyond to the Highlands. Cosy cottages provide the prefect place to relax with a warm fire, good food and great company after a day out in the hills or exploring Edinburgh.

What's on around Edinburgh in November?

This month, celebrate Bonfire Night in a spectacular display at Hopetoun House. Visit a magical light display at the Edinburgh Botanics and ice-skate beneath Edinburgh Castle as part of Edinburgh's fantastic festive events.
