Edinburgh Intro

Edinburgh Intro - Edinburgh, United Kingdom

The Scottish capital, situated in the southeast of the country, invokes its long history as a royal seat with such monuments as Edinburgh Castle and the Palace of Holyroodhouse, the home of Mary, Queen of Scots, and Bonnie Prince Charlie.

Today, the Old Town and New Town (actually dating from the late 1700s) are designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Attractions in Edinburgh and the surrounding countryside include castles, fine art museums, breweries and distilleries, and beautiful beaches and parks.
