Edinburgh - Beauty in the Unfamiliar
Edinburgh is a city of history and festivals, cobblestone streets, and cozy pubs. You arrive at the airport and your private transfer is already waiting for you. The city charms you from the moment you step out of the airport. The Royal Mile stretches from Edinburgh Castle gate to the Holyrood Palace, fewer than 110 yards away. The wide street gives way to narrow alleyways that house small pubs, hidden restaurants, and historic homes. Near the Royal Botanic Gardens is 8 Howard Place, once home to Robert Louis Stevenson, the author of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. The remainder of the day is yours to enjoy the city at your leisure.
Relax in a classic pub, such as The Last Drop, and sit in the shadow of Edinburgh Castle with the locals. Stroll along the colorful facades of Royal Mile near the Scottish Parliament and listen to the bustling city wrap itself around you. UNESCO has recognized Edinburgh as a City of Literature; the Writer’s Museum is dedicated to the literary figures and rich cultural endeavors from the likes of Robert Burns to J.K. Rowling. The interior feels like an antique bookstore. The aroma is ripe with leather-bound books and lacquered wood. Kids and adults roam through the collection of works and memorabilia in utter fascination, remembering their connection to a variety of inspiring fiction.
