Edinburgh

UK travel information

Scotland 's capital Edinburgh stands as a capital should, proudly powerful and magnificent. Its location on high rocky land gives it an air of superiority over the generally flat areas around, and the grand towering castle leaves one in no doubt about its former might.

The old town area, between Castle Rock and the Palace of Holyroodhouse , is a delight to explore, and the city as a whole has lots to offer. Scottish architecture is wholly different from anywhere else in the UK , with its dark stonework giving an impression of strength.

The beautifully scenic Holyrood Park belies its city surroundings, and the National Museum of Scotland houses some of the nations most important artefacts. In late summer each year, the Edinburgh Festival brings around a million visitors to see the wealth of arts events on offer, making it the largest arts festival in the world.

It also makes an ideal stopping off point for those heading north to visit the highlands and islands. The impressive Forth Bridge crosses the river just a few miles from the city carrying travellers north towards Perth , Loch Leven, and the imposing Stirling Castle.
