Whilst I was studying in England, I was a member of my university's International Students Association - for a purpose. It is no secret that the ISA organises numerous trips around the country at friendly student rates. As such, I was able to go on day trips to places like Bath, Oxford and Cambridge for a song.

During winter 1995, I took the opportunity to travel to Scotland for a week with other international students. It was a round trip of Scotland which took us as far north as Inverness and Isle of Skye. Edinburgh was a compulsory and necessary stop-over of course. We spent one night in Edinburgh and I was lucky to have a friend who was staying there and he brought me site seeing.

I was quite impressed with Edinburgh actually. It is far smaller than London but retains a nice old world charm helped by the presence of the Edinburgh Castle in the middle of the city. No wonder many undergraduates like to stay put and find jobs in Edinburgh after finishing their studies. Edinburgh jobs can be found in online communities such as at Apart from jobs in Edinburgh, Gumtree also offers other classifieds such as flat/house to rent and stuffs for sale.
