Program Description:
Calton HIll
Join us to live and study for two weeks in historic Edinburgh, the capital of Scotland and UNESCO City of Literature and home to two World Heritage Sites. Come walk the same streets as did historic figures as Mary Queen of Scots, Adam Smith, and William Wallace, and see the sites that inspired such literary figures as Harry Potter, Sherlock Holmes, John Rebus, and Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. Once known as “Auld Reekie,” Edinburgh today is world renowned for its architecture, university, and castle as well as for producing some of the world’s most well-known writers such as JK Rowling, Walter Scott, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, and Robert Louis Stevenson. In addition to such historic sites as the Royal Mile, the National Museum of Scotland, Edinburgh Castle, Calton Hill, and Greyfriar’s Kirk, Edinburgh also boasts wonderful restaurants, lively pubs, a thriving theatre and music scene, and serves as the center of Scottish politics. Students can enjoy street performances, stroll parks such as the Meadows or Princes Street Gardens, watch a local rugby or football match, listen to local music and comedians, or brave the summit of Arthur’s Seat (the site which inspired James Hutton, the founder of modern geology.) In addition, students in the program will also visit cities such as Glasgow, Stirling, and St. Andrews as well as the Scottish Highlands, lochs, and glens. Students can also take advantage of Edinburgh’s location and rail, bus, and air transportation opportunities to visit places such as Aberdeen, the Orkney Islands, Manchester, York, Newcastle, or even London. As the French writer Voltaire once wrote, “We look to Scotland for all our ideas of civilization,” and now you can, too.
