Edinburgh Travel Guide

The Scottish capital Edinburgh is one of the world’s great cultural cities. It boasts a rich heritage of great art, literature and the arts, with such famous names as Robert Louis Stevenson, Sir Walter Scott and Robert Burns all inexorably woven into the story and fabric of the city. It came as no surprise when Edinburgh was named by UNESCO as its first ever City of Literature. Edinburgh, though, is no cultural timepiece or finished masterpiece; today, it's home to a dynamic and energetic cultural scene that visitors to the city can tap into.
