Edinburgh is the city, where the Scottish spirit can be felt as vividly, as nowhere else. A bagpipe and a kilt are a part of everyday life even these days. Scottish food, which consists only of healthy products, is well-known for its high quality. Basically, Scottish food is based on such ingredients as beef, lamb, game and a lot of fish. Not only Scottish cheese and Scottish beer are known all over the world, but also Scottish whisky.
The Edinburgh Castle.
The Edinburgh Castle is the most popular place of interest; it seems that the castle just hovers over the center of Edinburgh. If you use the drawbridge and go inside the castle, you will see the well-known Stone of Fortune, a sacred Scottish relic. Many years ago English and Scottish monarchs were crowned here. From the castle one can enjoy a wonderful view of the whole city. Every day, except for Sundays, on 1 p.m. you can hear the shoot of the castle alarm-gun. The Edinburgh Castle is often used as the location of the Annual Festival of Army Orchestras. The Edinburgh Festival, which takes place on the New Year's Day, is a great way to see magnificent holiday fireworks. More than that, in Edinburgh tourists can see interesting performances dedicated to new adventures of Harry Potter.
