`The impression Edinburgh has made upon us is very great; it is quite beautiful, totally unlike anything else I have seen......'
QUEEN VICTORIA, 2 September 1842. Leaves from the Journal of Our Life in the Highlands
For many Scots, the Edinburgh of today seems more like a true capital city than it has for almost three hundred years, since it is now the centre where the Scottish Parliament sits to determine issues affecting the country's people.The city has boasted wonderful architecture and fine musems for many years; as it faces the third millennium it does so with a sound economy, growing prosperity and a clutch of new buildings and enterprises. It offers excellent exhibition and conference facilities, its financial institutions are of international importance and the research carried out in its universities is renowned world-wide. Increasingly a truly cosmopolitan city, with a cultural life whose dynamism is no longer confined to August, Edinburgh rates highly for the quality of life enjoyed by its citizens and those who come to visit.
