The Central Belt of Scotland
The central part of Scotland is where most of the people live and work. Edinburgh, the capital city, is famous for its Castle sitting on top of Castle Rock and the Royal Mile that stretches down the slope to the Palace of Holyroodhouse where the queen stays when she visits the city. Edinburgh is also home to the new Scottish Parliament as well as a number of internationally renowned festivals that take place during the summer. Glasgow in the west is the largest city of Scotland with its many museums and shopping areas.
