Edinburgh, is a handsome and ancient city, famous for its magnificent castle and Palace of Holyroodhouse as well as for a world-acclaimed international arts festival and some excellent museums ? not least the outstanding National Museum of Scotland. A short journey west is Glasgow, a sprawling industrial metropolis that has done much to improve its image in recent years and can now boast a range of fine museums and galleries to complement the impressive architectural legacy of its eighteenth and nineteenth-century heyday.
Located in the beautiful Scotland, United Kingdom, the city of Edinburgh is the impressive capital city of the Scottish country. The city is bordered by a series of volcanic hills to its south and is also home to the beautiful coastal resort of Portobello. As for size and population, Edinburgh is perhaps one of the smallest European capital cities out there, measuring only 260 square kilometers and being home to just under half a million inhabitants.
However, despite it minuscule size, the city more than makes up for its status as the capital of Scotland by offering locals and visitors alike the most advanced infrastructure in the country, as well as being home to some of Scotland's most important festivals and other similar celebrations, like its International Science Festival, the Fringe Festival or the renowned International Film Festival. Likewise, Edinburgh also offers visitors a stark variety of things to see and to, including some of the best cultural venues in Europe, as well as a thriving nightlife and an excellent cuisine.
Edinburgh is comprised of many districts, which divide the city in many parts, each with its own set of particular characteristics ranging from traditional villages to Georgian buildings sporting a unique architecture.
Central Edinburgh - Home to the Royal Mile and to the Edinburgh Castle, the Central district is full of beautiful Georgian-style streets, as well as offering visitors a wide array of sites and attractions in addition to the ones mentioned above. Some of the city's best bars, shops and restaurants can also be found in this district.
East Edinburgh - By far one of the best features of the Eastern Edinburgh district is that it is home to the renowned and beautiful Portobello Promenade. This makes the district one of the favorites among tourists and locals alike, who head for it in order to enjoy the sea breeze and excellent restaurants.
Nestled in Lothian on the southern coast of the Firth of Forth, Edinburgh is the second most populous city in Scotland. Whether you are seeking for enthralling heritage, dramatic cultural milestones, or outstanding natural beauty, you’ll find it all in Edinburgh & the Lothians.

Make some time to wander leisurely at the Royal Botanic Garden. If you have already visited it and are planning to skip it, then think once again. It is widely popular that no two visits to the Royal Botanic Garden will be the same. A trip to Scotland would be incomplete without having a taste of the national drink especially at the picturesque Glenkinchie Distillery in East Lothian. While you’re at it, enjoy a trip to the historic Rosslyn Chapel in Midlothian.
Find your way in the city: Edinburgh itself is the hub of the A-road numbering system within Scotland. There are also other radial routes leading in and out of the city. The Edinburgh City Bypass (A720) avoids the southern suburbs. It is one of the main trunk roads linking vitally important routes to Glasgow, England and Stirling. Owing to the city’s population and expanding economy, Edinburgh, however, suffers from traffic congestion. Plan your travel around city centre, Queen Street and the western end of Princes Street accordingly to stay away from the traffic.
