Edinburgh

Edinburgh may be dubbed the Athens of the North, but in truth it is an exceptional and unique city. While it's surpassed in size by Glasgow, Edinburgh is Scotland's most popular attraction as well as its capital. It is home to the Scottish Parliament and features a historic combination of Georgian and Medieval architectural styles.

    The world tour started fairly locally with a trip to Edinburgh to see my eldest son - but hey that's another country ticked off already! The timing was great too as The Fringe was in full swing - definitely a good time to visit. The street artists gave a real buzz to the place and there were so many good shows ...

We stayed here because we were taking the MacBackpackers three day tour of the Highlands and it was owned by the same company. They also own two other hostels in town.

Fantastic location - very good to have found a self-catering hostel just off the royal mile. There are very noisy clubs just outside, and the walls are very thin but all in all not unpleasant.
