The city of Edinburgh was built on the southern shore of the Firth of Forth Estuary, and is home to just under half a million people. Scotland's capital has a proud history, with the prominent second century castle overlooking the city atop its volcanic rock perch. Rent a car from Edinburgh's Picardy Place and explore the city's old and new towns, which are collectively listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, divided by the Princess Street Gardens. The city's original district is home to a stunning skyline which includes Greyfriars Kirkyard, Holyrood Palace and the Church of St Giles. The new town plays host to the city's arts and cultural offerings, and was subtly developed alongside the original.
Throughout the year, Edinburgh is a fantastic city for shopping, eating and drinking, however, during July and August, Edinburgh becomes alive with the world's largest arts festival, the Fringe. During this period the city is taken over by performances of arts, crafts, music and spontaneity, with millions flocking to the iconic celebrations. Hire a car from Edinburgh's Picardy Place, and head out of the city in pursuit of the Lothians' countryside, and nature reserves. Here, you can enjoy a peaceful walk and take in the atmosphere around.
