Fussing about the expense of Edinburgh accommodations is nothing more than the whinging of the lazy. Do your research, fellers. Why, one can get a gym membership for less than 50 quid for the entire month. With moist, poolside liedown chairs just (almost, kind of) made for sleeping. Newspapers can be read at the all-night McDonald’s while waiting for the 6am opentime. Alternatively, the morning rituals of the Waverley Station coffee place can be fascinating as they swirls around your daybreak head.
The airport is always open, a bank of chairs to stretch out on for the price of a bus ride. Who’s to say you’re not taking the morning flight to Spain?
Bring a bag.
