Athens of The North
Edinburgh, the capital city of Scotland, is often referred to as 'The Athens of the North', in a nod to the architectural styles found in the city. The city is renowned for its International Arts Festival, held annually every summer, as well as for the associated Fringe Festival and not forgetting the Edinburgh Tattoo. Scotland is 'the home of golf', and the area along the East Lothian coast, known as the Scotland’s Golf Coast, has renowned courses and parkland courses, in fact there are 22 from which to choose, all just a short drive from the city. Amongst these is Muirfield, one of Scotland's Open Championship courses, and fine courses at Gullane, North Berwick, and Musselburgh, home to the oldest golf course in the world.
