Hello! My daughter and I are planning 5 days in Scotland We will be based in Edinburgh..a special retreat for her 40th birthday. August would be a better month for us( towards the very end), but I fear the best hotels are already booked. Would this be too late to book during August? We could go in September.....my question is , for first timers, would the festival time be overwhelming? I am imagining it being chaotic during festival..By the way, anyone know of a special hotel in city center? We will not have a car. Thank you very much!
