Edinburgh at English => English (The Britannica Concise) Of Explained:

City (pop., 1995: 448,000) capital of Scotland, and headquarters for the Lothian administrative region. Located in SE Scotland, the original burgh, now known as Old Town, arose in the 11th cent. AD, around Edinburgh Castle, the royal residence of Malcolm III MacDuncan. In 1329 Robert the Bruce granted Edinburgh a town charter; it became the capital of the Scottish kingdom in 1437. The city was destroyed in 1544 in the border wars with England; its characteristic use of stone architecture began with this rebuilding. The 18th cent. saw a cultural and intellectual renaissance in Scotland, and Edinburgh was home to such luminaries as D. Hume, A. Smith, R. Burns, and W. Scott. It was the birthplace of the Encyclopæ dia Britannica (1768) and the Edinburgh Review (1802). The city expanded in the late 18th cent. with the development of the Georgian-style New Town, separated from the Old Town by a valley. It is the center of Scottish culture and education, and is home to the Univ. of Edinburgh, National Library, National Gallery, and Royal Scottish Museum. It is the intended site of the new Scots national parliament.
