Edinburgh & Scotland

EdinburghEdinburgh Inspiring Capital logo

Scotland’s inspiring capital is an amazing place to live and study English!  This small and friendly city is easy to get around on foot or by bus, which is great because there are so many things to see: the castle and palace, tiny cobbled streets, fascinating architecture, underground tunnels, Scottish culture, views of the hills and sea, and beautiful green parks.

There’s also an incredible amount to do.  You can choose from hundreds of tours of the city and the rest of Scotland, including the breathtaking Highlands and islands.  If you like whisky, you’re in heaven!  For Scottish literature, dance, music and arts, there is possibly nowhere better than vibrant, cultural Edinburgh.  And if you simply enjoy soaking in the atmosphere and exploring the personality of a place, Edinburgh – like Prague and Florence – has it all.  There’s even a wide variety of excellent food, coffee, wine and beer from around the world!

Perhaps most impressive for visitors and locals is the internationally famous Edinburgh Festivals of performance, literature and art.  Every summer, Edinburgh expands as thousands of artists, performers, writers and ‘culture vultures’ flock to the capital.  This is one of the most exciting times of the year, when everywhere you go you can watch comedians and actors.  It’s your chance to enjoy a pint of ale in an atmospheric beer garden while rubbing shoulders with some of the world’s most talented people!

There are few countries as intensely beautiful and culturally rich as Scotland.

With a population of only 5.3 million, Scotland has preserved its true wilderness and rural community life whilst a handful of bustling cities thrive.

Whatever your interest, Scotland has it: immerse yourself in history and culture in our prosperous capital, Edinburgh; drive single-track roads to begin your remote adventures among the mountains and waterways of the Highlands and islands; or settle in with the locals by a roaring fire of a rural pub for an evening of music and whisky.

And the best part?  You can do it ALL!  It’s only 2.5 hours from Edinburgh to the Highlands, and 3-4 hours to islands such as Arran, Mull and Skye.

There are few countries as intensely beautiful and culturally rich as Scotland.
