“It's no lie to say that Edinburgh is everyone's favourite city in the British Isles.
The capital of Scotland, Edinburgh is cultured, attractive and charming.

Edinburgh is best-known for two huge annual events. If you like a party and
don't mind crowds, come for New Year - Hogmanay to the Scots. More than
100,000 people pack the city centre for a four-day celebration that is one of
the most spectacular New Year parties in the world.




The second busy season is in August and September when the Edinburgh
Festival and Edinburgh Fringe turn the city into a cultural paradise, and
temporarily triple the population. The Edinburgh Festival concentrates on high
culture - classical music, opera and drama. The Fringe is far more anarchic and
deals with comedy, popular music and experimental theatre.

Although these are undoubtedly the annual highlights, there is plenty to see
and do whenever you visit "Auld Reekie", as the residents affectionately refer
to the city. Edinburgh Castle, the Palace of Holyroodhouse and the Royal Mile
are all world class attractions.
Edinburgh itself is breathtakingly beautiful, on multiple levels with storeyed
buildings in brooding grey granite. Meanwhile, south of the city centre Arthur's
Seat raises its distinctive bulk, and just outside the city limits you have the
natural attractions of the Pentland hills, real Scottish moorland.”
