Last week I went to Scotland for five days, where three days were spent in Edinburgh. The reason I went to Scotland was to meet up with some friends I met while studying in Hong Kong (having friends abroad = good excuse to go travelling!).
Edinburgh is the capital of Scotland, but I found the city quite small. But small can be good! If you like London, you will love Edinburgh. It was like a smaller and cuter version of London. It is a lot to see, but you will have time to see everything in a few days. I loved that you can walk everywhere and don’t have to think about transport, and I also found it easy to find everything.
