INTRODUCING EDINBURGH

Scotlands capital is one of Europes jewels and for many needs little introduction. Its jumbled medieval streets are fantastic to explore, and its August festival season a key date in the global calendar. This sees the city turn itself inside-out to simultaneously accommodate four festivals including the Fringe, the worlds largest performing arts event, and the Tattoo, a epic spectacle of military marching and bands held in the forecourt of Edinburgh's magnificent castle.

But really Edinburgh is a city of great variety, with a little of everything from urban buzz to rural corners; from cosmopolitan variety to cosy relaxing pubs. Its major museums and many historic sights provide plenty of things to do, while a glut of cafes and restaurants offer a great selection of places to unwind; then a string of venues and clubs stay open into the small hours.
