Destination Edinburgh

The 'inspiring capital' of Edinburgh has all the amenities of a cosmopolitan capital city. It is the city of story tellers and ghost tours thanks to the underground vaults that lurk beneath towering tenements. It is undoubtedly an absolutely wonderful place to live with a calendar jam packed with events and festivities.

The compact size of Edinburgh with all its cobbled streets a maze of wynds and closes means that getting around this beautifully architectural city means that many people can walk, cycle or catch a short bus to work rather than having long commutes. The main part of the city is made up of two halves; The Old Town and New Town both with a real distinctive character and atmosphere. The best thing about Edinburgh is the incomparable location due to the countryside being a stone’s throw away and the Highlands only a short drive away.
