Edinburgh

Scotland’s enchanting capital Edinburgh is a city of striking contrasts. Perched dramatically on an extinct volcano, the world-famous Edinburgh Castle is visible from almost any point in the city, a constant reminder of Edinburgh’s long and fascinating history. As you explore the city’s striking architecture, tranquil green spaces and exciting attractions, you will soon understand how so many authors and poets have been inspired to create iconic characters like Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, Sherlock Holmes and most recently Harry Potter.

Set on the southern shore of the Firth of Forth, Edinburgh has been the capital of Scotland since 1492.

The city’s most important and historic promenade, The Royal Mile goes right through the Old Town and ends at The Palace of Holyroodhouse, once the home of Mary Queen of Scots and now the British Royal Family’s official Scottish residence.

Either side of this famous street, unique combination of the cobbled streets and dark, narrow lanes of the Old Town and the elegant Georgian grandeur of the neoclassic New Town have become a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Edinburgh is a compact city, easily explored on foot. The city with its seven hills is of course characterised by Edinburgh Castle which is Scotland’s most popular tourist attraction. The world-famous Edinburgh Military Tattoo takes place at the entrance to the Castle Esplanade for three weeks in August during the summer festivals every year, while colourful fireworks displays are set off from the ramparts at Hogmanay.

Edinburgh is the perfect city to dine out in style, with a spectacular variety of restaurants serving up mouth-watering cuisine in atmospheric surroundings. Whether you are looking for Michelin-starred dining, hearty Scottish fare or food from around the globe with a uniquely Scottish twist, you’ll find delicious dishes to suit every taste and every budget.

Best-selling author JK Rowling gained inspiration for her magical Harry Potter novels as she sipped coffee in cafés such as the Elephant House. And you will soon see why, when you stop for a bite to eat in Edinburgh’s cosy cafes.

From traditional pubs offering real ales and leafy beer gardens to upmarket cocktail bars, Edinburgh’s bars and pubs are second to none. This thriving, modern capital city is also renowned for its nightlife, so whether you’re looking for top comedy, a traditional ceilidh -a Gaelic gathering with folk music and dancing, or an unforgettable club night, you are sure to find it here.

Edinburgh is the perfect place to indulge in some serious retail therapy and pick up memorable gifts for family and friends - and as the city is so compact, you’ll find it easy to explore on foot and take in your spectacular surroundings.

Classy George Street is the place to go for designer labels, while high-end couture such as Louis Vuitton and Versace can be found on the prestigious Multrees Walk or in luxury shop Harvey Nichols. Nearby, Jenners department store is a real Edinburgh institution offering ranges available nowhere else in Scotland in a grand Victorian building.
