The green capital of Scotland, Edinburgh

Edinburgh offers the perfect balance between all things traditional and contemporary. For a capital city, Edinburgh is a surprisingly green place and, even in the heart, you are never far from wide open spaces where you can take in amazing views, or just relax and enjoy the great outdoors on crisp winter days. The Lothians region is full of dramatic castles and medieval chapels that emphasize the great history of Scotland. The region also has beautiful beaches and championship golf courses.
