I am looking for accommodation for 2 nights in Edinburgh next month, August. I have a tight budget to spend on accommodation and I don't want to stay in a hostel or B+B. I am willing to go as far as I have to outside the city once there is public transport in / out. I have searched on many websites and selected distances outside city centre but am unable to find anything in my price range. I know its peak season and there are a couple of festivals on during the month of August but we have travelled in August before to other countries and got a good standard of accommodation for a competitive price once we went outside the city centre.
Can someone suggest to me a town or suburb within easy reach of Edinburgh that I should be looking at?
