Edinburgh - Enjoy the Highland scenery of the majestic Cairngorms National Park
Today we can enjoy the lush Highland scenery of the majestic Cairngorms National Park. We travel south to the charming highland town of Pitlochry and visit a Whisky Distillery. Here we learn the secrets of ‘Uisce Beatha’ or the ‘water of life’ before descending into the Scottish Lowlands to Edinburgh, Scotland’s most beautiful city. Overnight in Edinburgh.
Edinburgh is the capital of Scotland, and it is located in central-eastern Scotland, near the Firth of Forth, close to the North Sea. Thanks to its spectacular rocks, rustic buildings, and vast collection of medieval and classic architecture, including numerous stone decorations, it is often considered one of the most lively cities in Europe. Scottish people called it Auld Reekie, Edina, Athens of the North, and Britain’s Other Eye.
Edinburgh is not only one of the most beautiful cities in Europe; it is a city with a fantastic position. The view falls on all sides – green hills, the hint of the blue sea, the silhouettes of the buildings, and the red cliffs. It is a city that calls you to explore it by foot – narrow streets, passageways, stairs, and hidden churchyards on every step will pull you away from the main roads.
