Edinburgh

A thoroughly interesting city to visit

 

In Edinburgh (Dùn Èideann in Scottish Gaelic) you'll find history in almost every nook and cranny. The Old Town is preserved in the medieval street plan. The “Royal Mile” has something to offer to every possible taste and there is large number of small alleyways that lead off it to the north and south. Some of these lead to open courtyards and are therefore called “courts”. Others are open thoroughfares (“wynds”).

The capital city of Scotland boasts impressive museums, buildings that go back hundreds of years and numerous other intruiging places to visit. Edinburgh has it all....and more! You will love it.
