Exploring Edinburgh with the Fountain Court App

From recommendations to lifestyle guides, it's all at the tap of an app!

10 . 12 . 2018

At the tap of an app, all the information you need to make the most of your trip to Edinburgh is right there!

Things were a little different here at Fountain Court in 2016. We used to put copious amounts of paper into every apartment to tell our guests about what was happening in Edinburgh. Not only was it difficult to sift through the mountains of flyers to find any information, but the amount of waste this was producing was an issue for the planet. And thus, the Fountain Court app was born.

It’s been a huge hit with our guests over the last 2 years, and not just for telling them where they can get discounts across Edinburgh! We have consistently listened to feedback about the app and are always looking to enhance it. So what are the most popular features on it?

Local Discounts

Is there anything better than ending a day of exploring with a delicious meal at an established eatery? How about a hefty bill on your tab? We work with a fantastic group of local bars, restaurants and attractions to provide our guests with discounts at the best that Edinburgh has to offer. This includes well known brands like Hard Rock Cafe and Zizzi, and also local establishments like Camera Obscura and Otro Restaurant. There really is something for everyone!

Using our app will help you find the nearest discounts and will even provide you with GPS navigation to your chosen destination. Picking where to eat or what to do has never been easier! Unfortunately it’s no dice if you’re not our guest; you have to have a Fountain Court Keyfob to actually get your discount. Fountain Court guests only!

Points of Interest and Amenities

Just arrived in Edinburgh and feeling lost? Never fear! We’ve listed the greatest places that you should try to visit while in the city. From Edinburgh Castle to Victoria Street, there’s something for everyone in our diverse city. Like our local discounts section, we’ve included GPS navigation which links in with your own apps for easy travelling. If you find something not listed let us know and we will happily add it!

If you’re looking for the essentials, our local amenities section lists everything from tram stops to nearby ATMs. A quick look at this section will make you feel at home in no time.

Lifestyle Guides

As much as googling a city before you arrive is a great way to plan your holiday, sometimes the best people to ask are the locals themselves. As Edinburgh experts we’ve pulled together a number of lifestyle guides about Edinburgh to help you discover something new. From planning a romantic date night to a range of rainy day activities, kick back, relax and learn more about what the illustrious Scottish capital has to offer its visitors.


It’s easy to find exciting or extravagant events to enjoy in your free time when you’re at home. In an unknown city? Not so much. Without following the right accounts or having a group of friends to keep you updated, you might miss out on what could be the night of a lifetime. We sift through events to bring you the best of the best. From coffee festivals to outdoor play sessions for children, there’s something happening for guests of all shapes and sizes.
