Edinburgh is the capital of Scotland. Perched on a hill, it is composed of an old medieval town and an elegant new Georgian town with neoclassical gardens and buildings. Edinburgh Castle overlooks the city and is home to the Scottish crown jewels and the stone of Scone (the coronation stone). Arthur’s Seat is an impressive peak situated in Holyrood Park and offers a panoramic view of the city.
