Fortunately, Scotland’s capital is a city bursting with indoor attractions that are guaranteed to captivate the whole family, so your mood needn’t be dampened by the weather. In fact, a little rain creates the perfect opportunity to explore a fascinating museum, to wander amid tropical plants in lofty glasshouses, to grab a tempting bargain in an exclusive boutique or to indulge yourself at a decadent spa.
