WHAT WE LOVE

The streets of Edinburgh Old Town look like they came straight out of a gothic storybook. Here, you'll find the Edinburgh Castle - home to Scotland's crown jewels, including the Stone of Destiny used in the coronation of previous Scottish rulers. On the other side of the canal is Edinburgh New Town where you'll find all the modern shopping brands like Primark, as well as Marks and Spencer's amongst others. If you fancy a hike, make your way to Arthur's Seat or Calton Hill, both with gorgeous panoramic views and historical monuments.
