If you have never had the pleasure, you should consider a visit in 2011. Late summer is a great time to visit, as the world famous Edinburgh Festival takes place then, equally the new years Edinburgh hogmanay celebrations are fantastiv. If you would rather avoid the crowds you will not be dissapointed whatever time of year you visit.
