So, four weeks ago today I left school .  I had feared that an unfillable void would consume my life for the following three months until I left for university in September (Edinburgh, to do English Literature and History – extremely exciting!).  Such a void didn’t immediately come to pass due to a couple of social events in the first week and then being involved with a great play .  However, in the week since that play finished I have found myself at kind of a loose end and I realised that I have no idea what one is meant to do with the rest of their life after they finish school.

Well, I’m sure I’ll have more to do which interests me once I arrive in Edinburgh.  Museums, libraries, societies, the parliament,  studying … Ahh… Also, I was wondering whether I should start making ‘vlogs’ when I get there.  My reasoning is that there will be so many visuals of my new life I’ll want to show off which words alone won’t be able to do justice.  I’m not that great a speaker, but perhaps vlogging would actually help with that?  Anyway, I’d put them onto my Youtube account  if I do decide to go with that.

I just want to make a brief post in which I gush at how grateful I am towards the policies of the current Scottish National Party administration within the Scottish government which allow students studying for their first degree to be excempt from paying tuition fees.  Yesterday I received a letter from the Student Awards Agency for Scotland in which they promised to pay the roughly £1,800 yearly fee to study at Edinburgh University.  I have to apply again each year, but over the course of four years this will have saved me £7,200.  And the fee of £1,800 is incredibly modest! (I can’t help wondering how much a student from south would have to pay).

High winds have been battering Scotland, with power outages, disruption to rail and ferry services and trees down in some areas. There are also flood warnings in place.

However, the stormy conditions were expected to subside by late Sunday afternoon, before the main Hogmanay celebrations get under way.

The word "braw" - meaning good or great - and unveiled as part of the torchlight event, was chosen by the #ScotWord campaign, which asked young people to select one word that best answers the question: "What makes you proud to live in Scotland?"

Edinburgh ( / ˈ ɛ d ɪ n b ( ə ) r ə /  (   listen ) ; [6] [7] [8] Scottish Gaelic : Dùn Èideann [ˈt̪uːn ˈeːtʲən̪ˠ] ; Scots : Edinburgh ) is the capital city of Scotland and one of its 32 council areas . It is located in Lothian on the Firth of Forth 's southern shore.

Recognised as the capital of Scotland since at least the 15th century, Edinburgh is home to the Scottish Parliament and the seat of the monarchy in Scotland. Historically part of Midlothian , the city has long been a centre of education, particularly in the fields of medicine, Scots law , literature, the sciences and engineering. It is the second largest financial centre in the United Kingdom [9] and the city's historical and cultural attractions have made it the United Kingdom's second most popular tourist destination, attracting over one million overseas visitors each year. [10]

Edinburgh is Scotland's second most populous city and the seventh most populous in the United Kingdom. The official population estimates are 464,990 (2012) for the Locality of Edinburgh (Edinburgh pre 1975 regionalisation plus Currie and Balerno ), [1] 507,170 (2016) for the City of Edinburgh, [2] and 1,339,380 (2014) for the city region . [2] [3] Edinburgh lies at the heart of the Edinburgh and South East Scotland city region comprising East Lothian , Edinburgh, Fife , Midlothian , Scottish Borders and West Lothian . [11]

Edinburgh is one of the most visited cities in the UK and a popular destination for visitors from all over the world. One of the most common questions you’ll find on travel forums such as Trip Advisor is when is the best time to visit Edinburgh?

The best time to visit Edinburgh really depends on what you’re looking for on your trip, what’s most important to you. If you’re thinking about travelling to Edinburgh some time this year, you might want to consider some of these factors before deciding when to book.

We’ve collected some facts and figures on all of the above to help you make your decision. We’ve also created a handy infographic (at the end of this article) which you can download, print off or share with others.
