Some time ago #whyedinburghrocks was trending on Twitter. I looked up the pictures fellow twitterers have posted and I made it into a collage. I think there are plenty of reasons why Edinburgh rocks. below are some of the things that people have said:

Capital city masquerading as a village @queen_of_tarts
Its streets and tweets are filled with literature. Breathe in and you can taste the words. @wpbookfestival
A view round every corner! History under your feet. And Edinburgh Rock. x @BirlinnBooks
world leading breast cancer research unit at the Western General Hospital @breakthroughSco
A literary city crammed with writers and stories. "The stories are in the stone" - Ian Rankin @EdinCityofLit
 if someone asked me I'd say: because of its impressive architecture, rich history, excellent restaurants, you can walk everywhere, within 25 minutes you are in the Pentland Hills or by the sea and it's great for joggers.

if you're local, do you think Edinburgh rocks? if yes, why so? what do you like the most about your city/town/village?
