Why is Edinburgh so awesome?

So, we're taking a cue from our friends over at Forth Radio to try and get the term 'Why is Edinburgh so awesome?' to win over Google's negative take on our amazing city!

Property in Edinburgh is awesome

Yes, we may be biased but this really is a fact! ESPC is No.1 for property in East Central Scotland and that includes Edinburgh. Property in Edinburgh ranges from new build, modern flats to tenement flats and historic town houses. With House Price Reports steadily showing slight improvement month on month, this Scottish Capital is setting a great trend for the local property market.

For more on amazing properties in Edinburgh, search our website espc.com of course.



Deep fried everything

Edinburgh International & Fringe Festival

Comedy, dance, drama and film come together in a spectacular fusion every year proving once again that Edinburgh is awesome! For a magical month mid-year, people come from all over the UK and the world to marvel at the arts and culture overload that Edinburgh explodes with during the festival period.

You also get to see lots of actors doing this up and down the streets for a full month...

Irn Bru on tap

Lastly and like nectar from the Gods, Irn Bru is fantastically fizzy and its orange, sticky sweetness can be enjoyed anytime of the day or night! Although readily available all over Scotland, Edinburgh is awesome because you can pretty much drink it on any occasion!

Oh and a white Christmas in Edinburgh wouldn't be Christmas without the Irn Bru advert playing on repeat...
