Edinburgh is located on the south-eastern coast of Scotland and is its capital city. This city of approximately 448,600 inhabitants is one of the biggest tourist magnets in Europe. The city is nestled in a hilly region covered with lakes and vast woodlands.
Edinburgh enjoys a temperate maritime climate with pleasant summers and mild winters. The city has a long tourist season from May to September; the temperatures during these months range between 15°C and 20°C.
The city had modest beginning as a fortress atop a hill. However, owing to its strategic location it soon gained importance with the Scottish rulers, and has been the capital of Scotland for over 500 years. In fact, it is also known as a ‘literary capital’ as it has been home to many renowned authors.

Reviews Edinburgh

Robert Bale
Level 100     6 Trophy   
Overall rating 6
Overall Guide : Edinburgh Castle is the most distinguished landmark of the city; perched on a hilltop, the castle is home to several interesting attractions primarily the Scottish Crown Jewels and the well-preserved St. Margaret’s Chapel. The Palace of Holyroodhouse, though partly in... more ruins, is very dramatic and also displays the royal art collection. The Royal Botanic Garden spread over several acres and including numerous glasshouses is considered to be the best of its kind in the UK. The Royal Mile is a long stretch of road flanked by some of the most beautiful buildings of Edinburgh. Of these, the most important is the Museum of Scotland. It houses the most comprehensive collection of artefacts depicting the history of the region. The Edinburgh Festival includes a range of festivals from the end of July to September. Most important is the Edinburgh International Festival which attracts theatre, opera and music performers from around the world.

Overall Guide : Edinburgh is simply WONDERFUL! It's a city that you can't miss, especially in August when there is a festival in the castle overlooking the city, then it's busy in the centre, and very quiet towards the suburbs, there is a... more lot to see and a lot of fun to be had ... GO!
