Rolling hills, traditional pubs, impressive castles, classical buildings and the best whisky; there are few cities as charming as Edinburgh.
Situated on the hills, you find the enchanting capital city of Scotland: Edinburgh. There is one street you cannot avoid: the Royal Mile. The main thoroughfare takes you from the famous Edinburgh castle to the wonderful Holyrood Palace. On route, you walk through medieval courtyards with lovely souvenir shops and charming restaurants. Tip: Make sure you are at Edinburgh Castle at 1 pm. As is the tradition, every day except Sundays, a cannonball is fired!
