Edinburgh is Scottish capital which has all of the magnificence a big city should, but with the allure of a small town. The city is modern, but with a firm grip over its heritage, the city welcomes visitors with enthusiasm and a wee dram.
It’s the birthplace of numerous literary classics, good whisky and Sean Connery. You won't be able to buy alcohol after 10 pm, and everybody has an opinion on the trams. Still, Edinburgh will grab your heart, and there are a little things anyone who has been to the capital of Scotland will always miss, wherever they go.
Students who go for the renowned University, visitors who go for the clubs or history and locals, grew up on its shiny wet cobbled streets all like Edinburgh for its unique personality. The top things about Edinburgh are the tiny, abstract quirks that make this city what it is.
Edinburgh is a city that catches the cliche: the aroma of hops wafts from the breweries and around your nostrils as you hop off the train at Waverley and the red-faced piper, in his kilt and sporran, welcomes clicks with delighted visitors. The city is radiant in the summer sun, but Edinburgh is one of the few towns that suits a gloomy cloud or two.
