Edinburgh is the capital of Scotland and is mainly known for its most iconic landmark: Edinburgh Castle. The ancient building is situated high up above the city on top of a silent volcano. To its south lies Princes Street Garden, which separates the New Town from the Old Town. But the Scottish capital has more on offer: If you are looking for relaxation then you can have a picnic in one of the city’s parks. If it’s museums you’re interested in, then stroll through the Scottish National Gallery or the Royal Scottish Academy. A nice shopping spree is also always a good leisure time activity when in Edinburgh. If you want to experience Scottish culture at its finest, then a trip to a local pub is a must.

The Scottish capital is neatly incorporated into the British highway system and can therefore be reached by bus easily. Thanks to the offers of numerous bus companies like National Express, Eurolines UK and megabus UK there is always a cheap ticket up for grabs. Most of the buses arrive at Edinburgh Central Coach Station located very close to the well-known St. Mary’s Cathedral. Edinburgh Castle is also only a short distance from the conveniently located bus terminal.
