The Lothians region
Edinburgh, the capital city of Scotland, offers guests easy access to the rest of the country as there are good rail and bus links meaning that a day in Glasgow, Perth or Inverness is easy to achieve. Drivers will find it possible to get around most of the central belt with ease. Recommended trips include St Andrews, the Borders and the Kingdom of Fife.
The Royal Mile offers a wealth of sights from the Castle to Holyrood Palace, St Giles Cathedral to the new Scottish Parliament. The little vennels running off the Royal Mile are endlessly appealing. If you wish to see how people lived in mediaeval Edinburgh then a trip to Gladstone's Land will enlighten you. The gracious streets of Edinburgh's New Town (the Georgian area) are in complete contrast and should not be missed.
