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.
