One of the few decent places in Scotland, ruined by an incompetent council that fails to address the most basic of problems. Regarded by comedian Limmy as "de-facto English" when ironically half of Glasgow is loyalist.

The capital of Scotland that either full of English, people that want to be English or statues of English people. Only exception is August, then it's full of Japanese tourists.
Normal day in Edinburgh during August:Princes Street looks like there's a bus trip in from The Shire there's that many Japs about.

Edinburgh is the capital city of Scotland and the HIV capital of Europe; the former owing to the fact that the populace is made up of whores, poofs and junkies. Almost all of Edinburgh's residents (Edinbuggers) have a massive chip on their shoulder. There are many different reasons for this, foremost are; having fuck all of note in their city apart from a castle, a distinct lack of decent bars/clubs/atmosphere, two pish 'football' teams and the fact that they are all whores poofs and junkies. In spite of all this they still have the temerity to be a bunch of ignorant, rude, stuck up cunts. If you see a tram in Edinburgh you might want to check that you are not actually in Blackpool, as the silly bastards have been trying, and failing, to build a tram system since about the same time they threw the castle up. The best thing about Edinburgh is the motorway to Glasgow. Glasgow being Edinburghs more vibrant, cosmopolitan, cultural, stylish, laid back, humourous and funloving neighbour.
Glaswegian 1 : "Fancy going through to Edinburgh for a night out ?"

Glaswegian 2 : "Fuck that mate, that place is a massive fucking fun sponge and everyone looks at you like you've just pissed on their chips"

Glaswegian 3 : "Yeah fuck that, I'd rather go to one of Michael Barrymore's pool parties"

Glaswegian 2 : "True that man...true that"
