“Edinburgh,” writer Robert Louis Stevenson once famously proclaimed, “is what Paris ought to be. “And above all,” he continued, it’s “a city which rewards every visitor.”

The Scots writer certainly knew what he was talking about. Edinburgh’s magnificent architecture can be seen everywhere: from the tall buildings and narrow alleys of its medieval Old Town and the Royal Mile, to the graceful townhomes and commercial buildings of the Georgian New Town. And above them all stands majestic Edinburgh Castle.

Scotland’s bustling capital city – once commonly referred to as ‘Auld Reekie’ for its dubious odours – is undoubtedly one of the most popular places to visit in Scotland. These days, it’s far more likely to be referred to by visitors and locals alike as ‘Festival City’ due to summer events like the Edinburgh Festival or in winter, the always popular New Year Hogmanay celebrations.

Add to this the city’s many medieval relics, its Georgian grandeur, and its many contemporary attractions, and it’s easy to understand why the ‘Athens of the North’ attracts many millions of visitors each and every year.
