We have selected Explore Edinburgh as the world's very best website on Edinburgh.

The Basics section contains information on Edinburgh Weather, Driving in Edinburgh, Government, Phone Calls, Population, Smoking, Time Zone, Currency, and Did You Know. The factoids included in the Did You Know section include the fact that Scotland is the only country in the world where Coca Cola is not the best selling soft drink. Irn Bru is the best seller. There is also a Scottish Inventions section, which includes: The Telephone, The Television, The First Cloned Mammal, The Modern Steam Engine, Logarithms, Penicillin, the Pedal Bicycle, and The Breech-Loading Rifle.
