The Lothians region

'Edinburgh', said the writer Robert Louis Stevenson, 'is what Paris ought to be'.

Its magnificent architecture shifts from the lofty tenements and narrow closes of its medieval Old Town as they tumble down the spine of the Royal Mile, to the grace and geometric precision of the Georgian New Town.

Above it all, in its towering splendour, stands the Castle.

Every step is a revelation - an alleyway which reveals an ancient courtyard, or a wynd which opens up a new panorama. And yet within this sweeping elegance is a compact city, a bustling city, and above all a city which rewards every visitor.

Beyond the city, the Lothian countryside provides a beautiful setting for the rich gems of the capital.

This is an area steeped in history, filled with castles, great houses and battle sites.

It's also the ancient home of the game of golf and you can find some of the great links and parkland courses of the world here.

In fact, the trails and parkland and miles of glorious coastline in the Lothians open up the countryside for everyone - from picnickers on the fine golden beaches, to walkers high in the Pentland Hills.
