Edinburgh Travel Guide

The capital of Scotland, Edinburgh has a history of nearly 700 years. The old architecture all around and the rich Scottish flavor make this one of the UK's cities which are well worth seeing. The bustling shopping streets, old and new museums, the alluring experience of whiskey, and the Elephant Café where the Harry Potter stories were born make visitors fall in love instantly with the simple elegance of this art suffused city.
