Edinburgh, hot or not?
What is Edinburgh
Edinburgh (Gaelic: Dùn Èideann; ) is the capital of Scotland, part of the United Kingdom, located in the Central Belt region of the country. With a population of approximately 450,000, "Auld Reekie" (Edinburgh) manages to combine both ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere. Watched over by the imposing Castle - the symbol of the city - Edinburgh combines medieval relics, Georgian grandeur and a powerful layer of modern life with contemporary avant-garde. In Edinburgh, medieval palaces rub shoulders with the best of modern architecture, Gothic churches with amazing museums and galleries. The throbbing night-life centre of the Scottish north, Edinburgh - "the Athens of the North" is also a feast for the mind and the senses, playing host to great restaurants, shops and an unequalled programme of city festivals throughout the year. Hogmanay - the Scottish New Year - kicks off the festivities, which culminate in the high summer with the Tattoo, the International and the Fringe, amongst many others.

I head to Edinburgh at least twice a year - once for the Festival and once to see friends! My advice is if you don't want an arduous train journey there then it's ok because cheap airlines like Easy Jet and Ryan Air fly there on a daily basis. I still like to book a couple of months in advance, but then maybe that's just me!

The castle is located on a steep cliff. On a sunny day we had a great view over the city and the nearby fjord. The castle itself is great but its location is even better. We also enjoyed the nearby Whisky heritage center with its huge selection of whisky.
