    Edinburgh = Medieval Times

    I love Edinburgh

    Scotland is truly a magical place. Edinburgh is an easily walkable city with many neat things to see.

    Insider Tip:Take time to leave Edinburgh and take even a one day Highland tour, so much to see! Take your time to walk down many of the closes as you miss a lot of cool history and shops if you don't.

    Edinburgh should be a stop for anyone traveling in the UK

    Edinburgh is fantastic. I fell in love with the city and its history. If you're traveling in the UK and don't make it to Edinburgh, shame on you! I personally love it even more than London, shocking? I know. It is definitely worth the trip and the money.

    Insider Tip:You can walk everywhere. But, bring good shoes and leave the rolling suitcase at home. It is a hilly city, so be prepared for 45 degree uphill climbs and lots of stairs.

    Great city if a little damp!

    There's a hell of a lot to see in Edinburgh! It's got a massive amount of history to it which means you're never too far from somewhere of historical significance. There are a lot of tourists so it might be hard to find a local Edinburgh experience which isn't just another tourist trap. The weather is never great here either but at least there's plenty of pubs!

    Insider Tip:An umbrella! always bring an umbrella!
