    • I loved your text with each of these images. Edinburgh has been on my bucket list too long, so this fall my spouse and I are going to spend some time in and around Edinburgh. Lots to see and do!

    • I love Edinburgh. To me it screams dramatic medieval city with tons of character and city life. Here is a random photo that was popular on Reddit yesterday, not for its photographic excellence, but Edinburgh.

    • There is a wee bit more to the city than the medieval section; the world heritage site covers both old and new towns.

      The New Town is a great example of Georgian town planning dating from the 1760s (photo below shows both towns). Though a lot of the photos of Edinburgh focus mainly on the old town, with a few New Town Buildings like The Balmoral Hotel included, there are some interesting parts to the New Town and West End too. For instance there is Moray Estate

      There are some great museum in the New Town like the Georgian House and Scottish National Portrait Gallery

      Unfortunately, the New Town gets overlooked, despite it being slightly bigger than the Old Town; and is a bit less overrun with Tourist shops too.
