The Cobbles of Edinburgh, Scotland

Edinburgh is the capital city of Scotland, situated in Lothian on the southern shore of the Firth of Forth. It is the second most populous city in Scotland and the seventh most populous in the United Kingdom.


Edinburgh is rich in associations with the past and has many historic buildings, including Edinburgh Castle, Holyrood Palace, the churches of St. Giles, Greyfriars and the Canongate, and an extensive Georgian New Town built in the 18th century.


Edinburgh is fondly known as “Old Smokey”. This is because of all the smoke and chimneys the city had in the past creating smog over the city. The weather in Edinburgh is normally rainy and windy, but far from being an inconvenience, the bitter weather gives the city an extra charm, creating a mysterious and sombre atmosphere.


Auld Reekie, a down-to-earth place that flicks an impudent finger at the

pretensions of the literati. Auld Reekie is a city of loud, crowded pubs and decadent restaurants, late-night drinking and all-night parties, beer-fuelled poets and foul-mouthed comedians. It’s hard not to fall in love with the Scottish capital. With a dark and mysterious history, woven through narrow alleyways and cobbled streets, it’s not hard to see how J.K Rowling found inspiration while writing Harry Potter here.



Cobbles

Stone setts, “Cobble” add significant historic and cultural value to the streets of Edinburgh and are an important feature of cityscape. These make the city a beautiful sight and are a part of the heritage.


The capital has a special radiance when the rays of sun stream through the clouds and when the night falls, the ghosts that refuse to leave Edinburgh come out to haunt the streets and buildings, while guides accompany curious tourists to see crypts, alleyways and graveyards in order to discover the mysteries that besiege the heart of the city.


The country’s hearty dishes combined with the traditional Scottish breakfast will probably make travelers happy with extremely fond memories of the city.
