Edinburgh Departure Points

Edinburgh is a magical place. It’s a city of around one million people, and sits amongst seven hills. There’s a medieval town centre, a gorgeous castle, and a load of incredible museums. But you only understand the magic after a closer look. You’ll discover that somehow its weaving cobbled lanes boast 12 major annual festivals that in combination sell almost as many tickets as the Olympics. You’ll find out there’s a vast underground city. And you’ll learn that the city inspired the writers of Treasure Island, Harry Potter, and Sherlock Holmes. Visit Edinburgh and discover the inspirational capital of Scotland.
