If you are a dentist working overseas in Europe considering moving to the UK to live and work, then Edinburgh is a jewel of a city well worth considering.
Edinburgh is located on the east coast of Scotland, although it is the capital, it is however the second largest city in Scotland.

Widely recognised as the most beautiful city in Scotland , and the cultural hub.
As part of the Lothian region, it consists of East Lothian, Midlothian and West Lothian, where you can discover tales of Scotland’s past…… Stately homes, dramatic castles and medieval chapels all provide a sense of Scotland’s grand history.

The surrounding area has many historic towns and scenic villages , which are great for exploring. From award winning beaches, St.Andrew’s famous golf course and some of Scotland’s most impressive visitor attractions. Such as art & international film festivals.
Other attractions, to name but a few are the King’s Theatre and Musselburgh Racecourse.

Like any other city, Edinburgh has award winning restaurants, shops and pubs, which are situated along the elegant terraces and streets of Edinburgh.
Wherever you may choose to live and work in the surrounding areas, or even if you choose a position with Medicruit somewhere else in the UK, Edinburgh is easier to get to than you may first think.

Whether you choose to travel by air, road or rail, Edinburgh is easily within reach.
Once there, Edinburgh is a compact city, which makes it easy to get around on foot. City centre attractions are within walking distance of one another.

Whilst local bus services cover the majority of the city, train and bus services also serve the wider Lothian region.
A high quality Tram network is being created for Edinburgh, and is scheduled to be running on the streets of Edinburgh by 2011.
