Edinburgh is a city which you will warm to straight away. Walking down Princes Street, the city's main thoroughfare, Edinburgh Castle hangs proudly over the Scottish capital reminding the locals and tourists alike of the city's medieval past. There are endless streets to explore, both in the Old and New Towns, numerous shops to keep the shopaholics occupied, while at night the city comes alive with an eclectic mix of young and old filling the city's many restaurants, bars and clubs.

    Be fit and healthy to really explore!!

    Edinburgh is a tough city to really get to the heart of if you are not in the habit of excising. It is extremely hilly and requires alot of effort. Your could always just hop on the bus tour!!

    Insider Tip:Do the free tours. You leave a tip at the end and are very well put together.

    Awesome Food, Clean, Friendly, Cold

    Edinburgh was just a very welcoming city, with plenty of local spots to scope out, as well as a great tourist scene, too.

    Insider Tip:IF you like whiskey, THEN you must do the Scotch Whiskey Experience. I know, it's a little pricey, and it's touristy, BUT IT'S SO. DELICIOUS.

    Definitely a city to explore!

    I definitely didn't spend enough time in Edinburgh - there is something for everyone in this city (unless all you want is sun and beaches, in which case, go to mexico!).
