“This is a city of shifting light, of changing skies, of sudden vistas. A city so beautiful it breaks the heart again and again.”

Alexander McCall Smith

Edinburgh is Scotland's compact, hilly capital. It has a medieval Old Town and elegant Georgian New Town with gardens and neoclassical buildings. Looming over the city is Edinburgh Castle, home to Scotland’s crown jewels and the Stone of Destiny, used in the coronation of Scottish rulers. Arthur’s Seat is an imposing peak in Holyrood Park with sweeping views, and Calton Hill is topped with monuments and memorials. This amazing has everything to make sure your visit is an incredible experience!




Scottish and European restaurants are dotted around the square, many of them offering outdoor seating areas for al fresco dining in the summer months. Be sure to check out The Skyline restaurant at Tynecastle Park, Condita and of course The Pipers Rest Public House for their haggis. If it's Indian cuisine you're after then you should head over to Pakata for some delicious Indian.   Once a medieval market place and site for public executions, the Grassmarket is now a vibrant area buzzing with lively drinking spots and eclectic shops, why not check out the Dragonfly Cocktail bar or the secret cocktail bar Hoot redemeer? Its detailed medieval architecture, stunning castle views and dynamic atmosphere make it one of the city’s most-loved areas, frequented by tourists, students and professionals alike. Many of the pubs in the Grassmarket offer live music and acoustic performances on most nights.


The Royal Mile

The Royal Mile runs through the heart of Edinburgh’s Old Town, connecting the Edinburgh Castle, perched high on a base of volcanic rock, with the Palace of Holyroodhouse, resting in the shadow of Arthur's Seat. Another tourist attraction on this road would be the Camera Obscura an illusion museum full of crazy illusions for you to discover!

Peppered with superb attractions such as The Real Mary King’s Close or the Scottish Storytelling Centre, historical sites including St Giles' Cathedral and some of the best eating and drinking spots in the city, the Royal Mile offers much to see and do. For a glimpse of recent history, be sure to visit the ultra-modern Scottish Parliament, a striking building boasting a cutting-edge design.

A trip to Edinburgh would not be complete without a trip to Cafe Piccante on Broughton Street, the phenomenal fish and chips and the highlight of the trip, a battered mars bar.
