Edinburgh Things to Do

Most European countries contain a long list of historical sites to visit ... but there is something magical about Scotland.

In Edinburgh, the country's capital, the feeling of being transported into the past is very real, thanks to the majestic castles and monuments with the scenery of the Highlands as a backdrop. It's not about just visiting the sites, it's the feeling of witnessing history that makes this place so great.

And now, Emirates Airlines will be operating daily flights to this epic city starting October 1. Emirates is sliding into the preexisting slot previously held by Etihad Airways, who announced that starting October, they will cancel their flight between Scotland and Abu Dhabi. The flight will land in Edinburgh at 2:50 p.m. and takes off again back to Dubai at 8:15 p.m. to land at 6:40 .a.m. – just in time for work!

Here's a list of the top 10 places to see when you go.
