Edinburgh & The Highlands by Steam
Perched on the First of Forth’s southern shore, the city of Edinburgh sprawls over a dramatic landscape. Dominating the City’s skyline is Edinburgh Castle, home to both the Scottish crown jewels and the Stone of Destiny used in the coronation of Scottish rulers.
A centre of culture and the arts, Edinburgh is well-known for its festivals, including the world’s largest festival of the arts, the Edinburgh Fringe. The medieval Old Town is an intricate warren of steep staircases, narrow winding lanes and passageways just waiting to be discovered. Linking Edinburgh Castle and the Palace of Holyroodhouse is The Royal Mile. Charming townhouses, historic landmarks and churches line the streets.
