Edinburgh the capital of Scotland
Edinburgh’s city centre is renowned as being one of the best shopping venues in Scotland, and this, along with its fascinating history, makes it such a universal destination. The city has a wealth of historical places to visit, such as the majestic castle and Holyrood Park, where the famous Arthur’s Seat is located. Princes Street Gardens offers a quiet walk within the heart of the city. Edinburgh also boasts a wide choice of museums from art to the museum of childhood. When its time to refuel after all that shopping and culture, there are plenty of places to wine and dine.
The popular Greendykes regeneration project is also located in Edinburgh. Its situation is ideal as it’s close to primary road links, within easy reach of Edinburgh network railway stations with links to Dunfermline, and Glasgow; and Edinburgh Airport is just a 20-minute drive away.
