Edinburgh is the capital of Scotland, and is usually the first stop for most travellers looking for a Scottish break. If you’re looking for a city vibe then Edinburgh will be perfect for you – coincide your trip with the annual Edinburgh festival for a taste of bohemian fun, or skip the peak season for a cheaper trip and just enjoy the many great shops, pubs and restaurants.
Scotland’s largest city, Glasgow is a fantastically vibrant destination, with museums, galleries, restaurants and shops galore. It is also a great place to enjoy live music and comedy shows – as well as the Commonwealth Games!
