Edinburgh is one of the most beautiful cities in the United Kingdom. It is set among towering hills and the city is set among parks and ancient buildings – many from the Middle Ages.
Scotland was united with England through the Act of Union in 1707 following years of conflict. Until 1999 Scotland was ruled directly from London but following the Scotland Act in 1998 Scotland now has its own parliament and is responsible for making most of its own laws. Edinburgh, as the capital city is at the heart of a dynamic period in Scottish history in which the country re-establishes its own identity and is developing progressive social measures modelling on their northern European neighbours.
