Each country has a city that represents it, a place where all the cultural and historical elements that make up such a nation come together. For Scotland, Edinburgh represents its beating heart, a place between modernity and historicity, where all traditions of the Scottish people can be believed. On entering the capital, a silent form appears in front of a palace which stands on a hill and pushes the visitor to enter its powerful walls and relive the past. A city that holds a historical charm, with stone streets that seem part of a medieval world, alternating with the richness of a modern reality. A place to live amidst antique shops and bagpipe music of street artists or cultural events of the palace.
Margaret of Scotland, Life of the Blessed

His intervention, as acknowledged by many historians, had greatly increased the cultural world of Scotland at the time, focusing on broader aspects of the soul. A profound life in which Saint Margaret had time to pray for herself, dedicate herself to her faith and help the weakest and poorest of the entire kingdom. He died on 16 November 1093 after a long illness. His cult flourished even if sanctification occurred only in 1250 and he was held responsible for the role of protector of Scotland in 16 was3.
