People say that the Edinburgh accent is one of the most pleasant in the English speaking world, with long, gentle vowels and a softness that is hard to dislike. Rather like the city itself, lying gently across a number of rocky hills, peering out over the North Sea. Exploring the old city centre, you will find hip, young students from the highly-respected local universities mingling with visitors from around the world, with the occasional kilt fluttering in the breeze. Any more than a breeze though and you will discover at firsthand what Scotsmen wear under their kilts (answer: nothing!).
Visit a whisky distillery, explore the spectacular Edinburgh Castle or simply get comfortable in a traditional Edinburgh pub with a whisky and a good book.
