Standing proudly as the capital city of Scotland, Edinburgh is steeped in culture and is regarded as one of the most beautiful cities in the world.
The architecture in Edinburgh is like no other, the majestic castle sits central atop volcanic rock, and can be seen from all around the city. There’s so much to see and do in Edinburgh, from the cobbled streets and chic boutiques to visiting the beautiful nearby beaches, there’s certainly something on offer for everyone whether city life is your thing or not.
When picking somewhere new to live, transport is often the deciding factor, if it’s difficult to get to and from work do you really want to move there? Edinburgh has fantastic transport links to the rest of the UK, it sits on the East Coast line which means fast connections from Edinburgh to London are regularly available, and you can be in Glasgow in under an hour which is perfect if you’re city-hopping for work.
If you’re into social events, Edinburgh is the place for you. The Table is Trip Advisor’s highest rated restaurant in the city and is set in a fantastic central location, whilst a little on the pricier side, it certainly makes for a real treat! If you’re in to after-work socialising, The Devil’s Advocate is an extremely popular bar, tucked away down a medieval close opposite St Giles' Cathedral the location is just as perfect as the drinks!
On the topic of work, Edinburgh is home to some major brands; HSBC, Nestle and American Express are all big employers in the city – you’re sure to find something up your street. In 2016, the average salary of someone working in Edinburgh sat at a little over £27,000 with the average house price at around the £270,000 mark.
When it comes to culture, Edinburgh knows a thing or two – starting at the famous castle that dominates the city’s skyline, Edinburgh is also home to some internationally important galleries and museums and the mix of Georgian and Victorian architecture makes it a beautiful city to walk around.
