Edinburgh is the capital city of Scotland, situated in Lothian on the southern shore of the Firth of Forth. It is the second most populous city in Scotland and the seventh most populous in the United Kingdom. The population in 2013 was 487,500. Edinburgh has been recognised as the capital of Scotland since at least the 15th century, but political power moved south to London after the Union of the Crowns in 1603 and the Union of Parliaments in 1707. After nearly three centuries of unitary government, a measure of self-government returned in the shape of the devolved Scottish Parliament, which officially opened in Edinburgh in 1999. The city is also the annual venue of the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland and home to many national institutions such as the National Museum of Scotland, the National Library of Scotland and the Scottish National Gallery. Edinburgh's relatively buoyant economy, traditionally centred on banking and insurance but now encompassing a wide range of businesses, makes it the biggest financial centre in the UK after London. Many Scottish companies have established their head offices in the city. LESS
Scotland's nationalist leader was grilled on Thursday by opponents over his plans to keep sterling if Scots vote for independence, just two days after a poll showed he failed to win a television debate which was dominated by the currency issue. Alex Salmond says that if Scots vote for independence on Sept. 18, Scotland will keep the pound even though British ministers have repeatedly ruled out a currency union. After a television debate in which Salmond was peppered with questions about his "Plan B" for the currency given London's opposition to any currency union, Salmond was again quizzed on Thursday about his plans.
