THINGS TO DO IN EDINBURGH
“Edinburgh is what Paris ought to be.” Robert Louis Stevenson.
“Edina! Scotia’s darling seat!” Robert Burns.
“There is no habitation of human beings in this world so fine its way...as this, the Capital of Scotland,” Andrew Carnegie.
“Edinburgh isn’t so much of a city, more a way of life...I doubt I’ll ever tire of exploring Edinburgh, on foot or in print,” Ian Rankin.
A UNESCO world heritage site and hailed as the UK’s favourite city for the ninth year running by The Guardian’s Travel Awards, Edinburgh is an iconic city. Also, with a record number of Edinburgh restaurants now boasting Michelin stars, Scotland’s capital is officially the most culinary-decorated city in the UK after London with five Michelin star restaurants in the Capital. Old cobbled streets and medieval buildings sit alongside exclusive names such as Louis Vuitton, Harvey Nichols and Jenners. The capital’s skyline is dominated by the sprawling Edinburgh Castle, perched on top of 437ft of basalt rock, with the Palace of Holyroodhouse just one mile away down the historic Royal Mile. Furthermore, less than half an hour away from Edinburgh lies the coast and its white sandy beaches, the countryside of east west and Midlothian, the Pentland Hills and country parks like Beecraigs and Linlithgow.
