Edinburgh is the capital of Scotland and it is located in central eastern Scotland, near the Firth of Forth, close to the North Sea. Thanks to its spectacular rocks, rustic buildings and a huge collection of medieval and classic architecture, including numerous stone decorations, it is often considered one of the most lively cities in Europe. Scottish people called it Auld Reekie, Edina, Athens of the North and Britain’s Other Eye.

Edinburgh is not only one of the most beautiful cities in Europe, it is a city with a fantastic position. The view falls on all sides – green hills, the hint of the blue sea, the silhouettes of the buildings and the red cliffs. It is a city that calls you to explore it by foot – narrow streets, passageways, stairs and hidden church yards on every step will pull you away from the main streets.

The city is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the UK. It is the capital of Scotland and home to many tourist attractions. A visit here will be well worth it, considering the numerous things you can do and see.  

Edinburgh International Airport sees the presence of many flights, on both legacy and low cost airlines, to/from many European destinations. This would be your first choice in terms of travel.

If flights to/from EDI are difficult to find though you could consider flying into one of Glasgow’s two airports, Glasgow International or Prestwick, which lies only about 2 hours away by train.

From referees travelling from England, train and bus are a reasonable option.
