The Best of Edinburgh - Your First Visit



Description:

Welcome to Scotland, the land of castle and kilts! There is no place better to begin your journey than the country’s capital, Edinburgh. Edinburgh is a beautiful and beguiling place, composed of two districts – the medieval Old City and the contemporary New City. Many would say its gorgeous architecture and intriguing ancient history is matched by no other European metropolis. We couldn’t agree more. It was here against the city’s scenic background that we met and fell in love, and in the guide below we hope to share Edinburgh’s many wonders with you.
