Edinburgh is a city I can visit again and again. I spent a semester in the dramatic Scottish capital a decade ago and found it the perfect mix of historic and cosmopolitan; big enough to constantly be discovering, yet just the right size that I could really get to know it. I’ve returned several times, spellbound by the Old Town’s secret closes and winding streets, the intimacy of the pubs and the commanding features, including Arthur’s Seat and the Edinburgh Castle, that define the skyline.
Until international travel resumes, it’s easy to get an Edinburgh fix at home: Whether you’re learning about Scotland’s vast history via the National Museum of Scotland, sipping a whisky or gin made in Edinburgh or tuning into a live ghost tour in the Old Town, here’s how to get a taste of the city from wherever you are.
