The Edinburgh region

Edinburgh, the Capital City of Scotland, and the home of the Edinburgh Festival, is a wonderful mix of old and new with a rich history. The City's significance has been recognised world wide by its designation as a "World Heritage Site".

From the 'Castle' to the recently completed Scottish Parliament Building, from the Georgian 'New Town' to the medieval 'Old Town' the historical diversity of the City is enormous. Nonetheless, it is compact and can be explored easily on foot or by Public Transport and all the amenities of a modern Capital are close at hand.

Edinburgh's geographical location also offers the opportunity to explore the rich diversity of the whole of Scotland from the Borders to the Highlands and from the East Coast to the Outer Hebrides in the West, with breathtaking scenery at every turn along the way.
