Top 5 for under 5's in Edinburgh

Self catering properties are particularly appreciated by parents of young children, so being a parent of a healthy 4 year old I thought it would be helpful if I shared some local Edinburgh  knowledge with parents of under 5's so you can entertain your little one and make the most of your break.
