About Edinburgh, capital city of Scotland
Edinburgh, the capital of Scotland, is an ancient city with glorious views of the sea and hills and endless medieval alleyways and Georgian streets to explore. As the second most populous city in Scotland, Edinburgh is the annual venue of the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland. Edinburgh is also the home of historic sites such as Edinburgh Castle and Arthur’s Seat, one of the earliest known sites of human habitation in the area. Its many famous tourist attractions include the Royal Mile, the medieval Old Town, Holyrood Palace and many excellent museums.
Edinburgh Napier University, originally Napier Technical College, was found in 1964 and gained university status in 1992.
