A taste of the real Scotland
Edinburgh is the stately, historic capital of Scotland. Book a flight to Edinburgh and discover its castles, churches and pubs with a wide variety of whisky on offer. Visit the Scotch Whisky Heritage Centre where you’ll learn how the Scottish gold is made. In the evening, you can enjoy a hearty Scottish meal because haggis and stovies will be on the menu of every typical Scottish restaurant.
A Royal Mile of history
The main street in the old centre of Edinburgh is called the Royal Mile. Connecting Edinburgh Castle to Holyrood Palace, this street (indeed stretching one mile) runs straight through Edinburgh. Deep below the Royal Mile sits Mary King’s Close. You can take a tour of these underground alleyways from medieval times on top of which the city was built. But if that isn’t thrilling enough for you, visit the Edinburgh dungeons. Not only is Edinburgh the ideal destination for weekend holidays, it’s also a perfect starting point for a longer vacation in Scotland.

High on top of the hill
The Scottish capital is full of unique, extraordinarily-old architecture, the highlight naturally being Edinburgh Castle. Located on top of a hill, this castle that once served as a royal palace, arsenal, prison and vault for the crown jewels, towers over the city. And if you’re looking for a place to unwind, visit the Royal Botanic Garden, a peaceful oasis boasting a vast collection of plant species and magnificent greenhouses.

ARTS & CULTURE
Intrigues, murders, royal births and military fights: Edinburgh Castle has a troubled but fascinating history. Perched on the top of volcanic rock high above the city, the centuries-old castle is an important landmark of Edinburgh's skyline. And should you lose your bearings, the castle serves as an important orientation point.
