Edinburgh, the capital of Scotland is charming with an outstanding history and diverse yet delightful architecture. it is very famous for owning Scottish Pubs with a warm welcoming locals. the city is also well known for it's Castle, Alcoholic Beverages(particularly whiskey) and beautiful surroundings.
