Scotland’s spectacular capital city is bristling with history, enthralling sights and culinary surprises.
One of the greatest things to see in Edinburgh is simply the city itself, a portrait in mellow grey stone, auburn skies and the soft green of Holyrood Park.
Edinburgh’s streets are still rich with history, from the doomed Mary Queen of Scots to battles against sieges, plagues and fires.
But its story today is one of success, with cosy bars, buzzing galleries and superb restaurants. And many of the best things to see in Edinburgh are family friendly too, from treasure troves of art and culture to beautiful gardens.
