Edinburgh, the proud capital of Scotland, combines both ancient and modern charms with passion. It’s beautiful city is a picturesque jumble of medieval relics, Georgian grandeur and Gothic churches, all caught charmingly between contemporary avant-garde and some of the best of modern architecture.
One of Europe’s most beautiful cities, Edinburgh is draped across a series of rocky hills overlooking the sea. It is closely entwined with the landscape, its buildings and monuments nestled against crags and jagged cliffs.
The Old Town is a medley of medieval tenements piled high along the Royal Mile, its turreted skyline unfolding between the black Castle Rock and the jagged mound of Salisbury Crags. The New Town, still rather old by most standards, is an elegant Georgian district of Neoclassical grandeur, its stunning array of columns, porticoes and pediments now the city’s commercial hub.
The city is watched over by an imposing castle, the symbol of the city. Arthur's Seat, an extinct volcano, is a well-known Edinburgh landmark and around the city, stunning coastal walks lead towards the beach district of Portobello.
