Scotland’s capital is one of Europe’s jewels and for many needs little introduction. Its jumbled medieval streets are fantastic to explore, and its August festival season a key date in the global calendar. This sees the city turn itself inside-out to simultaneously accommodate four festivals including the Fringe, the world’s largest performing arts event, and the Tattoo, a epic spectacle of military marching and bands held in the forecourt of Edinburgh's magnificent castle.


Christian Williams has lived in Scotland for most of his adult life and has been a travel writer since 1997. Since then he's written or co-written some twenty guidebooks and a host of related articles for magazines, travel websites and UK newspapers.
