So In memories of last year, I’m gonna show you guys the pics of one of the most wonderful cities located in the wonderful and wild scotland: EDINBURGH!

I managed to stay there for 3 days and I did enjoy my time over there.
The city is really old, but it does have a lot of character! There’s a lot to see, and if you’re a lover of Museums but still like to a do a bit of shopping as well, then you definetely have to go there as it fuses the best of both worlds! The castle is massive and it’s right on top of a hill which surrounds the city! Fancy isn’t it? πŸ˜‰

 

Here’s some interesting facts about Edinburgh and next week I’ll make sure to tell you what you should see and where you should go! πŸ˜‰ But for now, Enjoy the pics!! πŸ˜›

FACTSΒ 

Β 1) Β Each year, Edinburgh hosts the biggest New Year street party in the world, known simply as Edinburgh’s Hogmanay. Over 100,000 revellers enjoy wonderful music in Princes Street Gardens and, across the city at midnight, dazzling firework displays on all seven of the hills surrounding the city.

 

2) The city’s Scotch Whisky Experience, just below Edinburgh Castle,Β is dedicated to the 300-year history of Scotch whisky and features sound effects and aromas! For the real thing, you can visit Scotland’s southernmost whisky distillery, Glenkinchie, thirty minutes drive from Edinburgh.

 

3) Edinburgh Castle, which dominates the city skyline, is the most popular visitor attraction in Scotland, with well over one million visitors each year.

 

4) The Old and New Towns of Edinburgh have been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site, along with cities such as Bath, Rome and Venice.

 

5) The Palace of Holyroodhouse is HM The Queen’s official residence in Scotland. It contains historic apartments where Mary, Queen of Scots lived. Mary’s death mask, meanwhile, is housed within Lennoxlove House, home of the Duke of Hamilton, just outside Edinburgh.
