Scotland offers a feast of cultural and historical delights. Visitors have endless opportunities to explore some of the world's most breathtaking scenery, from the mountains and glens of the Highlands to the lowlands of the Borders.
For those who love the outdoors, Scotland offers an unlimited choice of pursuits and spectacular scenery. World class angling on the famous salmon and trout rivers, sailing and spectacular hill walks are just a few of the many possibilities. Scotland, of course, is also the home of golf, with many courses to choose from, including the famous championship links of St Andrews. There are more than 20 golf courses within Edinburgh, while many other country pursuits are within easy reach of the city.
Edinburgh, the Capital City of Scotland is filled with historical sights and stories. The Old Town was developed from the 11th century, originally within defensive walls, around the rock on whose peak is situated the famed Edinburgh Castle. From here, the historic Royal Mile sweeps down to the Palace of Holyrood House, the Queen's official royal residence in Scotland. The Castle provides a spectacular backdrop to the busy shop filled streets - in particular George Street and Princes Street. Edinburgh is also famous for its New Town, which is a model of 18th century town planning with its magnificent Georgian Terraces.
Edinburgh has much to offer both historically and culturally and, in addition there are many fine restaurants, which draw on the rich produce of the Scottish countryside around the city. Whatever your preferred activity, Edinburgh caters for all and visitors to the city are sure to be charmed by all that it has to offer.
