The capital of Scotland makes an unforgettable impression with its historic, hilly landscape atop a series of extinct volcanos.

We Love

Famous for its castle, clans and some seriously cracking festivals, Edinburgh is a little city with a big cultural heart. Soak up Scotland’s epic history at Edinburgh Castle, savour smoky whiskies and fine seasonal scran (food) in Rose Street or Leith, and laugh yourself silly at the Fringe, just one of 11 major festivals held throughout the year. History buff? Climb 350 million years into the past and discover the awe-inspiring views from Arthur’s Seat, a dormant volcano, or check out the Iron Age forts at Holyrood Park. From delving into the city’s historic vaults to exploring the flower-filled delights of Princes Street Gardens, when it comes to Scotland, Edinburgh’s a must-see spot!
