I have visited Edinburgh but sadly only once. We happened to be there during the Fringe Festival which was fabulous! I do hope to be able to return to this fascinating city before too long.

I had been to Edinburgh previously, during the festival, and it was a bit too hectic. I prefer its more subdued pace during the rest of the year. Always a great place to visit.
