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.
E29***40Four streets rolled into one, the Royal Mile runs from the castle to thr palace and is absolutely jam packed full of history and atmosphere. You haven't been in Edinburgh until you've strolled down the cobbles.
GLS***59Looks an interesting but slightly innocuous monument. But the walk up is well worth it. Atmospheric (claustrophobic) steep spiral steps with 4 levels to get a better and better view of Edinburgh from.
salvalasilvia The Museum is free and always host great exhibitions, some might cost (a very small price), so it’s better to check online and if possible reserve a ticket but you can also buy them on the spot.The Museum is huge and gorgeous, perfect to spend a rainy day and it offers you a world of discovery all under one roof. So you can entertain anyone as there are many trails you can follow: art, science and technology, the natural world, design & fashion, Scottish history and archeology.It’s truly a gem.

The Scott Monument is a Victorian Gothic monument to Scottish author Sir Walter Scott.
Following Scott's death in 1832, a competition was held to design a monument to him.
The foundation stone was laid on 15 August 1840. Construction began in 1841 following permission by Parliament's Monument to Sir Walter Scott Act and ran for nearly four years. It was completed in the autumn of 1844, with Kemp's son placing the finial in August of the year. The total cost was just over £16,154. The monument was inaugurated on 15 August 1846, but George Meikle Kemp was absent. He had fallen into the Union Canal while walking home from the site and drowned on the foggy evening of 6 March 1844.

Arthur's Seat is a wonderful geologic formation right in the middle of #Edinburgh. This is one of my favorite places to come and get away from the hectic life in the city. Can always recommend this place to visitors. #tripaway.
Wahaca is a great restaurant where you can explore modern Mexican cuisine, taste typical street food delicacy and enjoy some evergreen dishes, all while having the best margarita in town and best guacamole.
I miss it so much.
Dark fairy tale in the crystal ball If you are tired of London, you are tired of life; if one day you are tired of life, then come to Edinburgh
