Edinburgh has been the capital and stronghold in Scotland for over a thousand years.

The geographical placement of the city at the mouth of the River Forth near the sea with a natural harbor and in hilly terrain has made it the perfect stronghold in the north of Britain for centuries – Which also means that the city has been changing from Celtic to Roman to Scottish to English and back again.

Even though Edinburgh has seen its part of war, besiegements, battles, and riots, then the destruction of buildings in these violent times has been small and you can find buildings there, that look exactly as they did when built over a thousand years ago.

Join us as we guide you through the narrow streets and alleys of this amazing city, and get ready to hear tells of kings and queens, money and power, prosperous days, disasters, and wars.
