The capital of Scotland and the second largest city after Glasgow, Edinburgh is undeniably one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Often called as the Athens of the North, this wonderful city is blessed with mountainous landscapes, tall trees, wonderful flower gardens, gurgling rivers and stunning lochs. Here, there are many attractions that can keep tourists engaged for days. Some of which are the Water of Leith - a trout stream, Arthur's Seat - an extinguished volcano, Calton Hill - a viewpoint and Duddingston Loch - the ideal place for bird-watching in Scotland.
