                      Edinburgh Travel Guide

                      Where is Edinburgh?

                      While you're planning your itinerary, it'll be handy to keep in mind just where Edinburgh sits on the map.

                      It's the national capital city of Scotland. It's also about 35 miles to the south of Dundee, a noteworthy city.

                      Forget about the star attractions — it's the locals that really make a place tick. In this part of Edinburgh and Lothian, you'll find 440,000 of them.

                      So, what's first? You'd be nuts to leave out Edinburgh Castle and Arthur's Seat. While you're discovering first-rate sights, why not take a look at St. Giles' Cathedral and Palace of Holyroodhouse as well?

                      You wouldn't want to vacation in Edinburgh without taking a peek at popular attractions like the University of Edinburgh and the Heriot Watt University. More worthwhile options are the Edinburgh Zoo and the National Museum of Scotland. You should definitely try to check out all of them.

                      Sit on the soft green grass, frolic with the kids and lay under the open sky at Princes Street Gardens. Need some more options? Graveyards might not be the first place that springs to mind when talking about sightseeing options. But Greyfriars Kirk can give you a great deal of information about the region. But there's more! Edinburgh Playhouse Theatre is a critical piece of the region's vibrant culture. Find out what's on and settle in for an unforgettable night of entertainment.
