The city built on hills, Edinburgh contains a rich history and is known as the birthplace of many fictional characters. A trip to the Writer's Museum will give you a glimpse into the mind of Robert Louis Stevenson and his work "Treasure Island." If you are looking for something a little more modern, a visit to The Elephant House allows you to have tea where J.K. Rowling started writing a little series called "Harry Potter."
If literature is not your thing, Edinburgh has many scenic hills to climb and Holyrood Palace, the residence of the Queen when she is in town. Or you can enjoy one of the many scotch distilleries in the area.
