Scotland’s capital city is a ‘must do’ for visitors to the area. Not only is it a beautiful city in its own right but it offers a huge range of tourist attractions. Shoppers for example, will be in seventh heaven on Princes Street.  Running parallel to the Royal Mile, Princes Street offers something for everyone ranging from a superb range of shops to the Princes Street Gardens along the southern side which also boasts a funfair and ice rink at Christmas.

Every August the city hosts an internationally renowned festival of arts, music and drama. One of the festival highlights is the annual Edinburgh Military Tattoo. This is held at Edinburgh Castle and is a stunning spectacle culminating in a lone piper playing a lament on the castle ramparts. Such is the popularity of ‘Hogmany’ or old year’s night in Edinburgh, that only those with tickets are allowed into the City Centre!

The dungeons that lie beneath the city provide a very ‘atmospheric’ day out for visitors and young children will love Edinburgh Zoo. Lovers of great architecture will find Edinburgh a delight and love it or hate it, the new Scottish parliament building is a must see.
