The Lothians region

Edinburgh is without doubt one of the most charming and attractive cities in the UK, maybe even in Europe. Visitors flock here from around the world, particularly in the Summer season and more so during the Edinburgh Festival which takes place in August. The city has many attractions which draw the crowds, there is the allure of the Festival itself, with thousands of performances each year during it's three week period - there is also the fascinating history of the city, with incredible stories intertwined with different parts of the city. Then there is the sheer beauty of the place, the architecture spanning centuries - the parks - the bridges - the monuments - and of course there is the Castle, a mind blowing piece of construction, sitting proudly on the Castle Rock, keeping watch over the city below.

All this combined undoubtedly makes Edinburgh a 'must see' stop on any travellers route around Europe.
