Why not see Scotland’s iconic capital city in an iconic, fully restored, vintage Volkswagen Campervan?

Jump at the sound of the one o clock gun fired from the ramparts of Edinburgh Castle or be inspired by the majestic views atop Arthur’s Seat. Described by travellers as the Athens of the North see the largest expanse of Georgian buildings in Britain. Take in the atmosphere of the Palace of Holyrood where Mary Queen of Scot’s saw her private secretary murdered in front of her eyes. Enjoy the contrasting architecture of the new Scottish Parliament or the Greek style Scottish National Gallery.

Touch the nose of Greyfriars Bobby, see the watchtowers built to deter grave robbers such as Burke and Hare whose grisly trade assisted in the development by Edinburgh medical students of modern surgical techniques.

Walk in the Grassmarket imagining the screams of witches being burnt at the stake. See where J K Rowling wrote Harry Potter or where Rebus takes a pint and Trainspotting characters Renton, Spud, Begbie and Sick Boy shoplifted for their next hit.

If you’re an Outlander fan, visit Bakehouse Close and Tweedale Court off the Royal Mile in the heart of the Old Town or Craigmillar Castle in Little France, once home to Mary Queen of Scots.

Scotland’s capital, Edinburgh, is a cultural icon and plays host to the world’s largest arts festival as well as one of the world’s top universities. St Giles Cathedral, historic Leith, Edinburgh Zoo and the Royal Yacht Britannia. Over 1,000 years of history as well as a modern and vibrant night life. Edinburgh is a must for any traveller to Scotland at any time of the year.
