The Edinburgh Festival is the biggest arts festival in the world, attracting over a quarter of a million visitors to the capital every year. Factotum have been providing accommodation for performers, administrators and visitors for over 35 years. Each festival, our dedicated property management team successfully manages hundreds of lets across the city.

If you want to be in the heart of the action we have properties in the Grassmarket, The Pleasance, or the medieval Old Town. Rent a townhouse in the beautiful New Town, a flat in historic Holyrood or a loft in Leith. We have some fantastic properties.

Festival Fireworks webHow long does a Festival Let last?

The contracts lasts for a minimum of one week up to six weeks during July, August and September.

What is included in the rental price?

Price quoted is for the weekly rental, inclusive of Council Tax and reasonable use of utilities. This is adjusted accordingly for weekly lets. All festival properties are furnished with self-catering facilities, bed linen and towels.

For landlords, it’s an ideal opportunity to benefit from significantly increased weekly rental income, while also escaping the busiest month in Edinburgh. For tenants, it’s a better way to experience Edinburgh and live in some of the city’s finest properties.
