The capital of Scotland, Edinburgh, is a beautiful city, filled with gothic architecture, unique street acts and plenty to do. With a vast history still seen along it's streets and lanes, as well as more modern features there's something for everyone.
Obviously, there is Edinburgh Castle, right in the centre of town....

If you're a sports fan, you'll know about BT Murrayfield Stadium (my home-away-from-home)....
|Watching Scotland play rugby in the 6 Nations. Always an incredible atmosphere!|
Plenty of hills to climb....

|Sunset upon Leith shores (Leith)|
|The Cow Shed pop-up bar is a favourite at festival time on the Cowgate|
But even if you're skint, you've got to check it out at Christmas...
|The Dome is famous for getting everyone on George Street into the Christmas spririt|
And it might be a city, but you can have a water-side escape in Cramond....
There really are thousands of beautiful spots in Edinburgh, many actually that are very unexpected, like an alley way with its own eerie, historical mysteries. I'll no doubt have to do a second post like this with Edinburgh as time goes on!
