Edinburgh is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful cities in the world. With its spectacular castle perched on volcanic rock dominating the skyline, the cobbled mediaeval streets spread out below.

Featuring both the Old Town and the New Town, the city centre was designated a World Heritage site in 1995.

With its compact centre, Edinburgh is the perfect place for a walking tour. The famous Edinburgh castle and the Palace of Holyroodhouse, the Queen’s residence in Scotland, are two of the must-see sites. With its stunning architecture, the city is littered with countless historic buildings, each with a fascinating story to tell.

Many famous people such as Graham Bell, Robert Louis Stevenson, Adam Smith, Sir Walter Scott and Arthur Conan Doyle are from here.

I can tell you all about this enchanting city as we walk together.
