The challenge comes from the "Empire's Second City', Glasgow, following its rise to becoming the Cultural Capital of Europe in 1990. Since then Glasgow has not looked back in terms of erudition. Competition, they say, is no bad thing and Edinburgh is now working harder than ever to keep happy its near 2 million visitors a year.
The topography of the town is remarkable with several
elevations breaking the city's slate-grey, chimney-potted expanse. Robert Louis Stevenson
declared, "No situation could be more commanding for the head of a kingdom and
none better chosen for better prospects".
