The Jewel of Scotland

The Scottish capital Edinburgh has long been a draw for tourists from all over the world. It's a city with a wealth of culture and history, and it combines remnants of its medieval past with the grandeur of the Georgian era, as well as having a distinctly modern feel, which has been influenced by the contemporary avant-garde. 


When go to Edinburgh

The best time to visit Edinburgh in terms of the weather is between May and September, though it can be both wet and windy at any time of the year. The city is world-renowned for its festival season.

New Year is a big deal in Scotland and "Hogmanay", as it's known locally, is a truly spectacular celebration, enjoyed by people of all ages.
