Edinburgh a city to explore by foot

No matter how you get to Edinburgh – by train, bus or cab from the airport – When you drive-in to the royal mile area it is magical.  Royal Mile is one of the oldest parts of the city with a road that starts nearby Edinburgh Castle and winds down to the Palace of Holyroodhouse.

This volcanic hill with sharp cliffs that have been cut by glaciers is the home of Edinburgh Castle.  The buildings and structures in this location are spectacular, magnificent, and breathtaking.

Edinburgh is a city that calls you to explore it by foot – narrow streets, passageways, stairs, and hidden churchyards. Every nook and cranny will pull you away from the main roads. That is to say, pack comfortable shoes and be prepared to walk hills.

Are you a theater connoisseur?

Edinburgh is home to many theaters, where art lovers flock to witness on stage performances such as plays, operas, music concerts, and cabarets.

We were, sadly, not able to visit Arthur’s Seat. To get a birds-eye view of the city, you can scale Arthur’s Seat, an extinct volcano, which is one of the most popular attractions and gives you a priceless view of their stunning architecture. Or The Calton Hill, home to Edinburgh’s most prominent monuments.

Edinburgh was the perfect place to stop by and spend time speaking with the owner of the souvenir shops, one-off restaurants, and gift stores about our online business. As a result, we spent time with them understanding their needs for advertisement.  We are considering catering advertising space in late 2018 to the small vendors allowing the little guy to promote globally.

In addition, my partner and I take breaks from promoting our free service. We enjoy walking through local parks to see how they differ from home. Above all, parks are a great place to unwind. I have never seen flowers as I did in Holyrood Park in Scotland. The colors of the flowers were spectacular, deep, and rich.

We are grateful to meet beautiful people around the world. Edinburgh, Scotland is a must put on your wish list, especially if you love architecture and history.

Our next destination is London via the train.  We are looking forward to seeing the landscape between these two places.
