Scotland’s capital city – also known as Auld Reekie

Steeped in history and inhabited for thousands of years, the origins are as a settlement that can be traced to the early Middle Ages when a hillfort was established in the area, most likely on the Castle Rock.

From the seventh to the tenth centuries it was part of the Anglian Kingdom of Northumbria, becoming thereafter a royal residence of the Scottish kings, the town that developed next to the stronghold was established by royal charter in the early 12th century, During the Wars of Independence Edinburgh Castle was captured by the English until Robert the Bruce's nephew, Thomas Randolph daringly recapture it by climbing its steep and craggy sides in the dead of night.

Robert the Bruce granted Edinburgh a Royal Charter in 1329. and by the middle of the 14th century was being described as the capital of Scotland.

When King James VI inherited the throne of England in 1603, Edinburgh ceased to be the principal site of the royal court, although it did continue to have its own Parliament. Everything changed after the Act of Union in 1707... Parliament ceased in Edinburgh, but the city prospered.

Today Edinburgh is a seamlessly blend of old and new, providing locals with the perfect destination to experience the sights, sounds and tastes of a diverse and vibrant city, fill your shopping bags along Princes Street, or boost your Instagram feed with photos from the top of the Scott Monument, tuck into a plate of gourmet food at a Michelin-starred restaurant in Edinburgh’s New Town, or put your palate to the test with a whisky tasting session in the Old Town, the nightlife scene runs the gamut from traditional pubs to high-tech clubs, and everything in between, with the pubs in Edinburgh’s Old Town, where cask ales and local whiskies are the order of the day.

The Mega bus runs up to 35 trips per day from Glasgow to Edinburgh Airport.

Edinburgh Airport, it is about nine miles from the centre of Edinburgh, it has one terminal, with check-in desks on the ground floor and security upstairs, the airport has three lounges, there are lots of places grab a bite before your flight, there is a food court just before you go through security offering light snacks or pub grub, after security, passengers walk through world Duty Free to reach the departure hall, here you will find a wide range of places, to take a meal or light beverage.

Staying in a hotel near the airport can take a lot of stress out of early morning flights. 

The Scottish Highlands, the largest region in the country is home to hundreds of iconic locations, with the most beautiful, inspiring and truly stunning region of ancient landscapes! Beautiful scenery comes as standard up here, the rest is your to explore and discover at your own pace.
