Edinburgh, the capital city of Scotland

Edinburg is the capital city of Scotland. The city lies on the eastern portion of the Central Lowlands of Scotland. The Water of Leith is the main river which flows through Edinburgh. The Old Town of Edinburgh is of substantial interest. It is home to two early royal palaces, the Edinburgh castle, a medieval abbey and a wealth of historic buildings. The New Town is as important as it is interesting, for two main - its uncommonly high concentration of world-class neo-classical buildings and for the amazing size of the area covered with classical ashlar-faced architecture.
