Duddingston is a small village in eastern Edinburgh, Scotland, that is situated very near Holyrood Park. Duddingston has a rich and ancient history that dates all the way back to the 12th century when the land was granted to the Abbot of Kelso Abbey by King David I. In addition to its many historic buildings and medieval structures, Duddingston is primarily known for the Duddingston Loch, a body of water that has been used for ice skating and curling for hundreds of years. Now people come to Duddingston for its quaint, old-world vibe that provides a welcome haven from Edinburgh.
- Stroll through the Duddingston Loch, now a protected wildlife reserve, and you can see a large collection of birds and waterfowl from around Edinburgh.
- Toss back an amber pint of beer at the Sheep Heid Inn, one of the oldest pubs in all of Edinburgh, where you can get a true sense of the pub culture for which Scotland is known.
- Explore the well-manicured paths at Dr. Neils Garden to find a great collection of plant life and flowers from Edinburgh and around the world.
Edinburgh has a great system of public transportation, so you will have no problem getting to Duddingston without using a car. Lothian Buses has several routes that go from the city centre of Edinburgh to Duddingston, so just check the schedule for the closest departure time. Those taking the train should get off at the Edinburgh Waverley station that is just a short walk away from Duddingston. Once there you can easily get around on foot, and exploring the winding medieval streets is one of the top activities in Duddingston.
