Edinburgh Bucket List

Scotland, Edinburgh Guide (B): Edinburgh Bucket List

There is one city which has a special place in my heart and that is the Scottish Capital of Edinburgh. I first visited this incredible city when I performed at the Fringe Festival in 2009 and have kept coming back for more ever since. Although it is relatively small, they have certainly packed a lot in! You have the historic old cobbled city on one side and then can easily transport yourself to the glamourous new city in a few moments across the Forth bridge. The skyline is absolutely stunning and is full of beautiful architecture which spans back hundreds of years. You can immerse yourself in history, explore Holyrood Park, go on a ghost tour, visit a wealth of amazing attractions and take part in their summer festivals – not to mention this is the birthplace of Harry Potter so if you are a fan, this is a must for you!
