"Edinburgh", said the writer Robert Louis Stevenson, "is what Paris ought to be.
Its magnificent architecture shifts from the lofty buildings of its medieval Old Town, as they tumble down the spine of the Royal Mile, to the grace of the Georgian New Town. Above it all, in its towering splendor, stands the Castle.
Every step is a revelation - an alleyway which reveals an ancient courtyard, or a wynd which opens up a new panorama. And yet within this sweeping elegance is a compact city, a bustling city, above all a city which rewards every visitor."
Edinburgh has many famous sons and daughters with many in the field of literature such as Robert Louis Stevenson (quoted above) and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. More recent sons include the actor (and supporter of Scottish independance) Sean Connery and the writer Irvine Welsh (who wrote the classic urban tale "Trainspotting" which was made into a blockbusting movie and universally proclaimed as the best British film of the decade ).
