5 Top-Things To Do In & Around Edinburgh, Scotland

Edinburgh is Scotland’s hilly capital with a medieval Old Town and Georgian New Town. It is famous for its landscape, beautiful gardens and classic buildings. Edinburg is surrounded by some of the most breathtaking landscapes and places to visit. Whether you visit Edinburg for a day or more, this list is going to keep you very, very busy in the most happy way!

No.5 – Checkout the Scottish Crown Jewels at Edinburgh Castle!

The Edinburgh Castle looms large over the city of Edinburgh and a marvelous architecture on its own. However, I want you to visit this castle not for its history or architecture but to see the the Scottish Crown Jewels, which are too striking to be considered ‘another royal jewellery’. Don’t forget to look at the famous ‘Stone of Destiny’, which was used in the coronation of Scottish rulers.
