Activities in Edinburgh
EdinburghSince the cinema blockbuster "Braveheart", in which Mel Gibson played the Scottish freedom fighter William Wallace, the Scottish capital Edinburgh has changed from something unremarkable to a cultural hotspot. Not surprisingly, Edinburgh embodies in every sense, the Wallacean phrase: "They may take our lives, but they will never take our freedom!" So, Karofans, whiskey connoisseurs, big-city hipsters and history buffs can find a piece of preserved freedom and savagery in the shadow of the Arthur's Seat volcano between Edinburgh Castle and the royal Holyrood Palace. It is no wonder that Edinburgh's medieval old town is still a place of cosiness, bringing together locals and travellers with a good glass of the "water of life", longing bagpipe melodies, and a good dose of Scottish humour. If that's not enough Scottish culture, explore the subterranean vaults of Edinburgh by candlelight, take a ghost bus through the night, or feel the freedom on the former private yacht, the Queen Britannia. So, what are you waiting for? Iron your kilt, download "Braveheart" for the flight to Edinburgh and off you go!
