As the capital city of Scotland, Edinburgh is steeped in history – and the perfect location for anyone who wants to get to the heart of Scottish culture. Edinburgh is famous for the thriving festival scene which is the life and soul of the city, as well as the imposing castle looming over from a mountainside.

Many famous people hail from Edinburgh, including Charles Darwin, the author Robert Louis Stevenson, J.K Rowling and Rory Bremner.
