Guide to Edinburgh

Wander Edinburgh’s breath-taking hilltop Old Town, climbing through the winding streets until you reach its imposing castle. Enjoy shopping along the cobbles of the world-famous Princes Street or take in the sights atop Calton Hill. Alternatively, sup a dram of whisky in one of the city’s top bars, or tuck into a delectable Scottish feast.

Part of Edinburgh’s charm is that the Scottish countryside is on your doorstep. Holyrood Park offers lochs, craggy cliffs and legendary views across the city from Arthur’s Seat.

A vibrant culinary scene and a broader focus on beverages beyond beer and whiskey have made this a city that seamlessly blends the past and the future.

Other must-see attractions in Edinburgh during your travels include Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh, Dean’s Village, Edinburgh Gin Distillery, Edinburgh Castle,
