Beautiful, dramatic Edinburgh is the showcase capital of Scotland. With its stunning Georgian and Victorian architecture, and winding medieval streets, it's easy to see why Edinburgh has been listed as a World Heritage Site. And the setting is captivating. Edinburgh Castle dominates the urban skyline, perched atop the crags of an ancient volcano right in the centre of the city. Yet Edinburgh is not stuck in the past. And neither is it all about bagpipes, shortbread, whisky and tartan. In fact, the city is one of the most vibrant, cosmopolitan cities in Europe and is regularly voted as one of the most desirable places to live in the world.
