Scotland is the Northern Country of the United Kingdom. From the highlands and lochs to the stunning towns, Scotland, despite the chilly weather, promises the perfect holiday for all visitors.
In the Central Eastern area of this country, is the City of Edinburgh. With views of the ocean and rolling green hills, this city of cobbled streets serves as a stunning capital of Scotland. From spectacular rock formations to an impressive collection of medieval, Georgian and classic architecture, Edinburgh is arguably one of the most lively and beautiful cities in Europe. With so many avenues to view, Edinburgh calls you to explore by foot. Meander down narrow streets and passageways to discover hidden gems that are rife with history..
Perhaps one of the most spectacular things about this city is its geology. From the volcanic Pentland Hills in the south to the seaside area of Portobello in the East, this landscape boasts such beautiful views that are definitely worth the walk. To get a birds-eye view of the city, you can scale Arthur’s Seat, a volcano on the south side of town. (don’t worry, it’s extinct!)
The Medieval area of the city, now known as the “Old Town” grew around Holyrood Abbey from the 12th Century. Looked over by the iconic Edinburgh Castle, today, the Royal Mile plays host to a collection of high-street stores and museums that draw in a vast number of tourists every day.
Facing the Old Town and Edinburgh Castle is New Town. Built between 1767 and 1850, this central area now boasts a stunning array of Georgian and Neo-Classical buildings. Home to the Scottish National Portrait Gallery and the famous Scott Monument, New Town is the perfect place to spend a day exploring and taking in some culture.
During the summer, Edinburgh transforms for the iconic Fringe Festival. Hosting a plethora of stage shows, from comedy and plays to dance and music, the streets come alive with buskers and street food for the huge crowds that come to visit for the festival.
