Edinburgh is truly an all-seasons city

Though every year visitors descend for the Edinburgh International Festival and the Festival Fringe, Edinburgh is truly an all-seasons city as equally suited to fortifying walks as it is to holing up in a pub. The ever-present Scottish rain lends medieval Old Town an entrancing, moody atmosphere, though the romance of the Palace of Holyroodhouse is tempered by the Escher-like Scottish Parliament building. Holyrood Park brings the weathered hills and heather of the countryside right to the city’s edge. New Town is home to shops, banks and business, while the rough-around-the-edges Leith bustles with excellent bars and restaurants. Diners don’t need to despair that it’s all haggis, fish and chips – Edinburgh is fully aboard the UK’s trend for seasonal, creative cuisine.
