Edinburgh, Scotland’s capital, is the country’s second biggest city after Glasgow. Located in Lothian, on the southern shore of the Firth of Forth, this historic city was built on the remains of an extinct volcano and is home to the Edinburgh Castle, located on Castle Rock, and Arthur’s Seat. The combination of the Old Town and planned Georgian New Town districts (both of which are UNESCO World Heritage Sites) give the city a distinct feel, and its unique character attracts millions of tourists every year. The world-famous Edinburgh Festival is held here every August and the Royal Mile, the National Museum of Scotland, the Palace of Holyroodhouse and St Giles Cathdral are also popular hotspots. For visitors and locals alike, there are plenty of places to eat out, ranging from five Michelin-starred establishments to coffee shops and bistros. The Kitchin and Restaurant Martin Wishart are just two of the many excellent fine-dining establishments, while the reputations of Valona & Crolla and Café St Honoré are almost legendary.
