Recognised as the capital of Scotland since at least the 15th century, Edinburgh is home to the Scottish Parliament and the seat of the monarchy in Scotland. It has long been a centre of education, particularly in the fields of medicine, Scots law, literature, the sciences and engineering. It is the largest financial centre in the UK after London, and the seventh most populous in the UK with a population of around 460,000.
Investment property in Edinburgh may well take the form of period properties, of which there are many in the Old Town and the Georgian New Town, built in the 18th century, which together now form a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Being a student town, there are considerable investment property opportunities in student property. As the UK's second most popular tourist destination after London, attracting over one million overseas visitors each year, holiday/short let investment property is a stronger contender, with extremely strong returns available during the weeks of the Fringe festival, the world's largest annual international arts festival.
