   Edinburgh, capital of Scotland and home to the Scottish Executive, lies on the southern bank of the Firth of Forth, by the east coast of Scotland's central lowlands.

In terms of size, Glasgow is bigger and is home to more businesses, but Edinburgh is still a major city with a booming tourist trade and forms the centre of Scottish politics.

Dominated by the ancient castle towering above the city, Edinburgh is the place to be for seeing in the new year at the annual Hogmanay celebrations. There is also the Edinburgh Arts Festival, with the accompanying Fringe Comedy Festival, which pull in such numbers of visitors that the city's population doubles for the period.

For those of a sporting persuasion the city has no less than two Premier League football teams to offer - Hearts and Hibernian - as well as the formidable Murrayfield stadium where all of Scotland's Rugby Union internationals are played, and until recently was considered something of a fortress for visiting teams.
