Midlothian has some of the finest tourist attractions in Scotland, all just a short bus ride away from Edinburgh
That was the message promoted to thousands of tourists and festival-goers in Edinburgh over the weekend.
Visit Midlothian, supported by VisitScotland and by our Economic Development team, organised a prominent information stand at the VisitScotland Information Centre at the heart of Princes Street.
On hand were representatives from some of Midlothian's top tourist destinations, including Rosslyn Chapel and Butterfly & Insect World near Dalkeith. Visitors, many new to Edinburgh, could learn about the stunning centuries-old carvings and beautiful stained glass windows on display at Rosslyn Chapel. They could also learn all about the incredible collection of insects, reptiles, butterflies and other creatures located at Butterfly & Insect World.
Loanhead-based MacSween were also on hand, tempting visitors with their famous haggis - and there was also plenty of information available about the many other top-quality visitor attractions in Midlothian.
