What is it in Edinburgh that makes history come to life?

Like anywhere in the UK, history is in your face - which is one reason I love going there. Edinburgh is no exception. What with the Castle in the middle of town and the Palace of Holyrood on the east end, along with all of the other history steeped into every square inch of this elegant city, I recommend it to all. I first visited it as a mouthy 16 year old back in 1967 ... and yet I had enough maturity (buried somewhere deep inside me!) to fall in love with it even back then ... finally got to come back in 2007 and then again last week. An elegant city ... and don't confuse it as being just "more of England" ... it is TOTALLY different from England!
