Edinburgh - UK

Capital of Scotland and one of the worlds most beautiful cities even though it has no skyscrapers, and personally I hope it never has any, here are the pics:

Beautiful. Who said all cities need tall buildings to have a good skyline when you have nature in the background and some spires of cathedrals and churches.

8.5/10

I have a good friend going to school in Wales, and he said that Edinburgh was one of the best cities he has ever been to. Skyscrapers be damned in this city. It's already too beautiful. 9/10.

wow im glad to see Edinburgh is doing so well, it shows people on this site arent always pro-skyscraper at all costs.

This is 1 city whose skyline would be made worse by skyscrapers.

No skyscrapers!

Edinburgh is gorgeous... don't make the mistake of ruining your skyline with some modern piece of junk.

Ok extra point for the rise in elevation in the center of the city - Edinburgh holds the most divine architecture and urban environments I've ever seen - an image of this city adorn my monitors background I love it so much!

6.5/10

It's fair - if we're talking just skylines (which we are) Edinburgh doesn't fit the mold I envision of a great one - height is very important to me!

how can i rate it if there's no skyline?

IMO, i think there's a need of another forum entitled "Rate Our City"
what if...the cities listed in rate our skylines will be ranked according to score. This city got high score even without skyline and be included among top list.

obviously those spires and a castle sitting on top of a volcano core dont consitute a skyline but something else entirely

I remember on my trip to Scotland back when I was in 10th grade, we had gone to the Military Tattoe (sp), I think it was either the end of August or early September. It was a school trip and we spent 3 weeks in Scotland and a week in London. I loved Princess Street and the Castle. That tower down in the park off Princess was a heck of a climb. Sorry to hear about the recent fire that destroyed so many historical buildings.

Funny thing, when we had a tour of the castle, about 10 years later when I was in the military and stationed in Germany, I had a trip to Lincoln England, my next door neighbor from Germany was also on another plane with me. We got together with an old friend of mine who was stationed in Okinawa with me, while we were waiting for a train to take us into London, I was browsing through some tourist adds and one from Edinburg caught my attention. On the cover was the same tour guide, that had shown my classmates from school, from the castle. It was weird.
