What can you teach me about Edinburgh?

Edinburgh, Dun Eideann in Gaelic, is the capital city of Scotland and the second most visited city in the UK. It is located in southeastern Scotland, near the southern bank of the Firth of Forth, at the edge of the North Sea and in the Scottish Lowlands. The city and its surroundings form a separate council region. The city and most of the council area are in the ancient county of Midlothian, including the busy port of Leith on the Firth of Forth. The council area also includes the historic county of West Lothian in the northwest, near South Queensferry.

Edinburgh is a city of theatricality, thanks in part to its setting among crags and hills and its tall buildings and black stone spires. Edinburgh has served as a military stronghold, an independent country’s capital, and a centre of literature, research and intellectual activity. Home to countless scientific inventions and discoveries over the last few hundred years, that continue to shape modern life - Edinburgh's minds also inspired the enlightenment (David Hume), and capitalism (Adam Smith). Edinburgh is home to many world-class educational institutions, in particular the University of Edinburgh and Heriot- Watt University. Despite experiencing ups and downs of fortune, the city has always reinvented itself and is often said to have a character similar to one of the fictional characters created there - Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde. It is now the seat of the Scottish Parliament and the Scottish Executive and a significant financial, legal, tourism, education, and cultural hub. The council area covers 102 square miles (264 square km). and has a populaiton of 482,640 (2011), though this has grown considerably in the decade since the last UK census.

Between 1856 and 1920, Edinburgh absorbed nearby villages, such as Stockbridge, Bruntsfield, Fountainbridge, Morningide, Newington, the Dean Village, and the Firth of Forth ports, of Leith and Newhaven. Since then the city has continued to expand outwards swallowing up towns and villages mainly to the west and south-east, but its aesthetic and political heart remains in its compact historic core, including the Old Town and the New Town. The Old Town, erected early in the Middle Ages when there was continual danger of assault from the South, huddles high on Castle Rock, overlooking the surrounding plain. On the north-side of Edinburgh Castle, the New Town sprawls out in a spectacular series of streets, crescents, and terraces. In 1995, UNESCO listed the mediaeval Old Town and the Neoclassical New Town as World Heritage sites. The dormant volcano Arthur's Seat looms large above the city and like Edinburgh Castle, and despite the seven hills, can be seen from most places in the Scottish capital.

This profusion of peculiarities, this fantasy in masonry and living rock," said Robert Louis Stevenson, the 19th-century Scottish novelist, essayist, and poet - born in the New Town, “is not a drop-scene in a theatre but a metropolis in the world of reality." The contrasts that distinguish Edinburgh also distinguish it as uniquely Scottish, for despite its guarded façade, it is a city capable of enormous warmth and delight. Its residents have historically been qualified of considerable enthusiasm, particularly in the fields of education, science, and also all things royal or religious. For example, in 1561, a crowd led by the fiery Protestant reformer John Knox attempted to burst into the private chapel in the Palace of Holyroodhouse, where Mary, Queen of Scots (1542–67), who had just returned from France, was attending a Roman Catholic mass. In 1637, a disturbance in St. Giles Cathedral in protest of a new service book sparked a Scottish insurrection against Charles I, triggering the War of the Three Kingdoms, which enveloped the entire United Kingdom in the 1640s and resulted in Charles’ execution. Following the lynching of John Porteous, captain of the city guard, in 1736, the burgh was on the verge of losing its royal charter.

In modern times, Edinburgh plays a leading role in UK media, as home to some of the largest arts festivals in the world every summer- the Official Edinburgh Festival and Fringe Comedy Festival. Virtually every major UK comedian and comedy troupe in the 20th century were "discovered" during one of the Edinburgh festivals. As well as being home to some of the finest English language writers over the last three centuries; in the 20th century, Edinburgh was also the "birthplace" of JK Rowling's Harry Potter series, is the principal backdrop of the work of Scottish writer Irvine Welsh, and is where Inspector Rebus plies his trade in the works of Ian Rankin.
