Edinburgh, Scotland

Moving on to Scotland, many believe that the capital of Scotland is the most beautiful city in the UK. Visit Edinburgh for its historic buildings that are breathtakingly well-preserved and stunning in their architectural detail such as the 13th century Edinburgh Castle, housing the Royal Palace and Scottish National War Memorial.
