Edinburgh – Sights and Secrets

edinburgh – the beauty in the north

Edinburgh. Nestled in an idyllic natural landscape between the shores of the Firth of Forth and the volcanic hills that are the gateway to the Scottish Highlands. A small capital, on the fringe of Europe – but so much more, and with so much more to discover.

Climb King Arthur’s Seat for a view of the rugged scenery that surrounds the city. Discover buildings, streets and areas with histories richer and deeper than Edinburgh’s emblematic castle. When the weather turns, take shelter in breathtaking museums and galleries like the National Museum of Scotland or the little Writers’ Museum – many of them absolutely free.

Partake of a pub experience like no other, or join a traditional Ceilidh dance evening. Around every corner, the charm of small shops, cafes and restaurants invite you to abide and wander. No doubt you’ll want to join in a malt whisky tasting – or perhaps you’ll even pluck up the courage to try Scotland’s famed and infamous national dish, Haggis?

But for all this delightful city’s charms, don’t miss your chance to venture out and discover the treasures that wait just outside it. Enjoy the gentle sea breeze in Portobello – the Brighton of the North. Lose yourself in the mystic atmosphere of Rosslyn Chapel, immortalized in Dan Brown’s The Da Vinci Code.

Enjoy discovering!

About "The Magnificent Travellers"
"The Magnificent Travellers" are a group of freelance journalists and professional photographers from Germany who love to travel. In 2014, they received a scholarship from the EU in order to travel to, and research the local culture in Edinburgh and write a travel guide about their experiences. Their first book ("Edinburgh - Sights and Secrets") is now finished, and they plan to continue to travel and present readers with short, concise and entertaining travel guides that showcase main attractions, but also bring travellers off the beaten path. Through proper research and travel journals presented with a professional and engaging layout, "The Magnificent Travellers" are going to provide readers and fellow travellers with digital travel guides available in both the English and German languages.

Authors: Gerald Biebersdorf, Melanie Dworaczek, Werner Gritzbach, Nadine Hasse, Sascha Ihns, Patricia Kämpf, Lydia Ranke, Michaela Schneider, Susanne Schramm, Hanadi Siering, Kai Simmerl, Ev Tsakiridou, Andrea Weil, Sabrina Wendling.

»Edinburgh - Sights and Secrets« is the first release of »The Magnificent Travellers« by Ebozon Publishing, which was published in August 2015 as an eBook.
