If your visiting Edinburgh even for a few hours you must visit the Old Town. Immerse your self in the real charm of this beautiful city. Some brilliant places to eat and drink (though can be rather expensive!).

Old buildings, winding streets, narrow alleyways and oozing with character.

One of the most beautiful places, not just in Scotland but the UK and beyond.

I became speechless when I arrived at Edinburgh! That is a beautiful city! I loved the old buildings, the underground city, the castle and the people are so warming and welcoming!

The atmosphere here is wonderful. If you only have a day or so to visit the city, then make the best of your time by visiting the old town. Lovely old buildings, well maintained, ooze history. There are some great independent shops and cafes too.

The Ghost Walks were hilarious and fabulous - love being scared! The steps and slopes get you fit. The views were wondeful. Great place to visit and stay to explore it all.
