Scotland - Bagpipe festival
What makes the Royal Mile so attractive for sightseeing is its vitality and bustle, the colorful stores, kilt makers, and many inviting cafes and pubs. It is quite different than a walk through the classical New Town that has won Edinburgh the title of "the Athens of the north."

But what would Edinburgh be today without its Festival started in 1947? More than two million visitors come to the city between mid August and early September for the biggest cultural event in the world with its definite high point being the Military Tattoo with its Last Post played on the Scottish bagpipes. An other specialty is "The Fringe", an alternative festival with both organized and spontaneous performances in the street, in parks, and small theaters in cellars by creative people from throughout the world.
The festival has also changed the culinary scene because for some time now one can eat better in the university and port city of Edinburgh than virtually anywhere else in this island kingdom. It is certainly so that the pubs are still as sociable as they have always been with a guarantee of the Scottish sense of tradition.
Castle - Scotland
For centuries the inhabitants of Scotland have been building fortifications and strongholds of one kind or another. It wasn't long before magnificent castles sprung up, their glorious towers reaching for the heavens. It seems that anyone who could afford this sort of protection for their families and forces made sure that they had it. It has been estimated that there were once about 3 000 castles Scotland.  Of course, these buildings differed in size, condition and purpose, yet they all served a very real purpose. Many of these have disappeared over time and others have become crumbling ruins, but whatever their condition they stand as a silent witness to times gone by.
