An Introduction to Edinburgh

Edinburgh is the capital city of Scotland and the second largest city in Scotland after Glasgow. It lies on the east coast of the Central Belt, along the Firth of Forth, near the North Sea. Owing to its spectacular, rugged setting and vast collection of Medieval and Georgian architecture, including numerous stone tenements, it is often considered one of the most picturesque cities in Europe.

Edinburgh is the seat of the Scottish Parliament. The city is well-known for the annual Edinburgh Festival, a collection of official and independent festivals held annually over about four weeks from early August. The number of visitors attracted to Edinburgh for the Festival is roughly equal to the settled population of the city. The most famous of these events are the Edinburgh Fringe (the largest performing arts festival in the world), the Edinburgh International Festival, the Edinburgh Military Tattoo, and the Edinburgh International Book Festival. Other events include the Hogmanay street party (31 December), Burns Night (25 January), St. Andrew's Day (30 November), and the Beltane Fire Festival (30 April).

The city attracts 1 million overseas visitors a year, making it the second most visited tourist destination in the United Kingdom, after London.

La storia di Edimburgo

Humans have settled in the Edinburgh area from at least the Bronze Age, leaving traces of primitive stone settlements at Holyrood, Craiglockhart Hill and the Pentland Hills.

In 1492 King James IV of Scotland undertook to move the Royal Court from Stirling to Holyrood, making Edinburgh the national capital. Edinburgh continued to flourish economically and culturally through the Renaissance period and was at the centre of the 16th century Scottish Reformation and the Wars of the Covenant a hundred years later.

In 1603 King James VI of Scotland succeeded to the English and Irish thrones, fulfilling his ambition to create a united kingdom under the Stewart Monarchy. Although he retained the Parliament of Scotland in Edinburgh, he marched to London to rule from his throne there. He ordered that every public building in the land should bear his family's emblem, the red lion rampant, and to this day the most common name for a public house in Britain is the Red Lion.

In 1639, disputes between the Presbyterian Covenanters and the Anglican Church led to the Bishops' Wars, a prelude to the English Civil War. During the Third English Civil War Edinburgh was taken by the Commonwealth forces of Oliver Cromwell prior to Charles II's eventual defeat at the Battle of Worcester.

In the 19th century, Edinburgh, like many cities, industrialised, but did not grow as fast as Scotland's second city, Glasgow, which replaced it as the largest city in the country, benefitting greatly at the height of the British Empire.

Edinburgh: the university

The University of Edinburgh, founded in 1582, is an internationally renowned centre for teaching and research. It was the fourth university to be established in Scotland, making it one of the ancient universities of the United Kingdom. The founding of the University is attributed to Bishop Robert Reid of St Magnus Cathedral, Kirkwall, Orkney, who left the funds on his death in 1558 that ultimately provided the University's endowment. The University was established by a Royal Charter granted by James VI in 1582, becoming the fourth Scottish university at a time when more populous neighbour England had only two.

Famous Alumni:

There have been many notable alumni and faculty of the university, including economist Adam Smith, signatories to the US Declaration of Independence James Wilson and John Witherspoon, Prime Ministers Gordon Brown, Lord Palmerston and Lord John Russell, engineer Alexander Graham Bell, naturalist Charles Darwin and biologist Ian Wilmut, physicists James Clerk Maxwell, Max Born, Sir David Brewster, Tom Kibble, Peter Guthrie Tait and Peter Higgs, writers Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Robert Louis Stevenson, J.M. Barrie, and Sir Walter Scott, actor Ian Charleson, composers Kenneth Leighton, James MacMillan, and poet William Wordsworth.

Breakfast- can you bring back the kippers for breakfast? missed it this year. Reception - would like to see a proper queueing process in the main reception, with a queue here sign with rope and poles. Some people are queueing and some are going straight to the desk.

I much appreciated the immediate answers of Alice Reid to each of my mails. At Pollock Halls, the only slightly unpleasant thing was the extremely noisy dining hall, whatever the time.

Very pleased with my whole experience of my stay at Baird House. Reception staff were welcoming and helpful. Breakfasts were a delight and serving staff guided me in the right direction as required. Accommodation was clean and tidy with plenty of space to store my belongings. My thanks to all concerned.

The staff was wonderful, very helpful. The rooms were clean and comfortable. Walking th the city center was no problem, location very good. We were there with our adult children and it was splendid to have our own rooms, a little quieter for us all... snoring...

We didn't know what to expect, staying in an university, but we were presently surprised with the standard and quality of the over all experience. It felt more like a hotel, than an university. The breakfast was wonderful. A great choice of self service, plus cooked breakfast was beautifully cooked. All the staff, including reception, restaurant and cleaners were all very helpful and polite.

We stayed at Chancellor's Court in Edinburgh twice on this stay and each time we were impressed with the value, cleanliness, comfort, and location. Thank you!

I had thought I had booked ensuite rooms and when we arrived we changed to a different block so I could be next door to my sister. The corridor showers and facilities were fine though and we really enjoyed our stay and the great location of the Halls. Will recommend it and book again in the future. Thank you.

Overall, my stay was great but the bathroom needed attention - paint peeling off around the door and skirting boards, caused I think by the wet-room shower!
