Scotland has its own significance in my life... I am big fan of Scottish culture..everybody loves scotland when it comes to whiskey...:P. the kilt the bands..the merriness.. the stubbornness everything about it fascinates me....Scotlandis a country that is part of the United Kingdom.Occupying the northern third of the island of Great Britain, it shares a border with England to the south and is bounded by the North Sea to the east, the Atlantic Ocean to the north and west, and the North Channel and Irish Sea to the southwest. In addition to the mainland, Scotland includes over 790 islands including the Northern Isles and the Hebrides.

Of which the most fascinating place is of course its capital Edinburgh... a very old city.. it was habitat even when it was bronze age.. and now it is among the Europe's largest financial center...the Edinburgh festival also attracts thousands of tourists but the beautiful thing about scotland is their hospitality.. it is just awesome...hotels in Edinburgh city centre with parking are easily available.. all you have to do is click and reach...
The city is affectionately nicknamed Auld Reekie[ (Scots for Old Smoky), because when buildings were heated by coal and wood fires, chimneys would spew thick columns of smoke into the air. Some have even called it the Athens of the North

The Old Town has preserved its medieval heritage with lots of Reformation-era buildings. One end is closed by the castle and the Royal Mile, leads away from it like the main artery; minor streets (called closes or wynds) lead downhill on either side of the main spine in a herringbone pattern. Large squares mark the location of markets or surround public buildings such as St. Giles' Cathedral and the Law Courts. Other notable places nearby include the Royal Museum of Scotland, Surgeons' Hall and McEwan Hall. 

Overall ... Edinburgh is a beautiful experience that you shouldn't miss .. I guess now you will check out it atleast once


Happy bucks
