Edinburgh, Scotland

Dùn Èideann

Overview

Edinburgh has a lot to brag about. As the second financial center of the UK, the longstanding capital of Scotland, and an international hub for the arts, cuisine, and history, saying there's quite a bit to do here would be quite a bit of an understatement. From its stunning mix of Neoclassical, Gothic, Victorian, and Georgian architecture to the staggering number of top-notch restaurants (with a few brandishing Michelin stars)—not to mention its huge span of museums galleries—Edinburgh is more than just a gorgeous city, it's a city with a grittily sophisticated charm like no other. It was even declared the first UNESCO City of Literature—not bad for a town that was once known as "Auld Reekie."

Take a hike up Arthur's Seat and soak in the stunning vista that cover everything from the broodingly verdant countryside to the churning waters of the North Sea, and when you're done, be sure to take your time checking out the splendorously imposing Edinburgh Castle (and soak up the history all along Old Town and the Royal Mile while you're at it). Or, if you're looking for more indoor activities, discover slices of Scotland's history (and the world's history, for that matter) in one of its amazing museums. Sounding exhausting? Don't worry. You can always hole up in a cafe, kick back with a dram of whisky, or treat yourself to a spa day before you get back out and explore all of the nooks and crannies of Edinburgh.
