Edinburgh = History

Edinburgh is a great city full of history. Some people call it the Athens of the North but it is truely Scotland's Jewel. A place dear to my heart and full of childhood memories - Ah Auld Reekie will never lose her charisma or ties which bind her to the past.

A Place that is Roslin

Virtual Tourist has no destination for Roslin but this unique place will not be overlooked. A true Story Book Place showcasting Rosslyn Chaple & the castle ruins both full of myths - legends and wonders.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Great City Great History Great Scots!!
  • Cons:Like most historical cities you will have to share Edinburgh with lots of fellow tourists
  • In a nutshell:Great for a weekend break

    Superb Edinburgh travel page with lots of stunning images. Royal Mile, Holyrood and the Old Town certainly look interesting to visit and explore. Scott Monument indeed looks amazing. Thanks for the virtual tour. ~ho & pang

    Fascinating Edinburgh pages & photos!! Reading Alexander McCall Smith's Isabel Dalhousie series has piqued my interest in that city. Is there really a 44 Scotland street?? Cheers!!! ~Alicja~

    Nope. I'm huffing and puffing and making sure it keeps going northwards! You know what those wimps down South are like - they're only be complaining on national news!! LOL! Gillybob greetings
