Edinburgh is the capital city of Scotland. It is a centre of government, law: commerce, culture and tourism. Situated on the south shore of the Firth of Forth, its skyline is dominated by Arthur’s Seat, and by Edinburgh Castle. It became a royal burgh by the early 12th century and was formerly part of the county of Midlothian. Throughout the centuries the city was at the centre of political, religious and cultural events in Scotland. In the 18th century it was given the name ‘Athens of the North’, reflecting the astonishing cultural achievements of Edinburgh residents in Enlightenment society. Another less flattering nickname was ‘Auld Reekie’, which referred to the smoke produced by Edinburgh’s many chimneys. The city centre has two main parts, the Old Town and the New Town, now linked as a World Heritage Site. Edinburgh.
