Edinburgh quite gracefully and deservedly holds its title as the capital of Scotland.


Named after old King Edwin of the 12th century, this now cosmopolitan city is a juxtaposition of a youthful artistic culture against a backdrop of hundreds of historical architectural landmarks sitting on the base of the magnificent Firth of Forth. It is during the month of August that the brilliance of Scotland’s artistic talent shines when the Edinburgh Festival/Fringe Festival takes hold of the city.  Thousands of tourists flock to Edinburgh to experience this unique and vibrant community.
