“Also called as the capital of Scotland, Edinburgh is a city of shifting light, of changing skies, of sudden vistas. It’s a delightful city with strong character immersed in culture and architecture. Edinburgh was also designated as the first UNESCO City of Literature in 2004. Home to world’s finest whisky, it is one of the most beautiful capitals of Europe.”
Highlights of this Scottish settlement include walking along the Royal Mile, admiring the view of the city from its impressive Castle, and climbing the towering Arthur’s Seat.
In 2002, Edinburgh was a literary powerhouse, attracting and spawning best-selling writers, home to vibrant publishing houses and the birthplace of the world’s biggest book festival. It pioneered the designation ‘City of Literature’, helped draft the criteria and took on the responsibility for the future development and sharing of literary culture across the globe.
