I went to Edinburgh for the first time last November and was blown away. We just flew up for the day from London but I LOOOOOOOOOOOOOVED that little bit of Scotland I saw. I've been told the highlands are incredible but I thought Edinburgh was pretty magnificent. We just walked about, spent some time at the Christmas festival, grabbed some food and chatted up some locals and had a blast. We also walked around town, went to a lovely castle and had some Scotch in a pub. So much fun.
