Finally, we’ve made it to the capital of Scotland. If you’re not a native, you probably think that Scotland is Edinburgh, though I’d be tempted to say it’s the other way around: Edinburgh is Scotland, the good the bad and the ugly and the magical. When the same city is called “The Athens of the North” and “Auld Reekie,” you know there’s a story behind it.

Over the next few weeks (or months, depends on how fascinating this is) we’ll be discovering the best of what Edinburgh has to offer—the people, places, foods, and adventures. Let’s find out what lies behind the city’s tourist facade.
From Arthur’s Seat to the Fringe Festival, from castles and ghosts to street food and dancing, from gloom to glory, this is a place that begs to be discovered.
