Edinburgh is the capital city of Scotland with its old town and new towns being listed as UNESCO world heritage sites.
With a mild climate most of the year, the average low in the coldest month is around 2ºC, the average highs during the warmest month are around 19ºC.
Edinburgh is a marvellous city situated in the lowlands of Scotland. The skyline of Edinburgh is dominated by the world-famous Edinburgh Castle which sits regally atop the Castle Rock and watches over Edinburgh. As one of the most visited attractions in Edinburgh, it welcomes over three million visitors each year and is also host to the world-famous Edinburgh Military Tattoo each August.
While in the city, take a walk through the famous Princes Street Gardens which sit at the bottom of Castle Rock, eat at some of the country’s finest dining spots, or venture out of Edinburgh to nearby towns such as Portobello Beach, North Berwick or Anstruther for world-famous fish and chips.
Each summer, Edinburgh comes alive with a wealth of festivals, from the Edinburgh Film Festival to the world’s largest arts festival, the Edinburgh Fringe. The Edinburgh International Festival and Edinburgh International Book Festival also take place in August. Take a walk-through Edinburgh’s old town to soak up the festival atmosphere, street performers and stalls.
The Capital is also known for a number of famous residents, including Sir Walter Scott, Robert Louis Stevenson, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and J.K. Rowling. Find out more about the locations that inspired Harry Potter. Or, visit the Outlander TV series filming locations.
Edinburgh is also the perfect starting spot to explore the rest of Scotland, whether you’d like to head North to Aberdeen or Inverness, West to Argyll & The Isles or The Outer Hebrides or South to the Scottish Borders or Dumfries & Galloway.
