I am sure that there are young people in Edinburgh, Scotland - there are young people in most cities/locations.

 

Now, as to there being any young people there who are, not only in the Truth, but also on this Forum ...... As The Doctor (played by Tom Baker) would have said "well ...... that is a different question"

Don't live there myself, but have been many times. People are well used to Witnesses in Edinburgh - We used to have our Regional Convention there for years, then we were relocated to Newcastle or Perth depending on where we lived. Love the Scottish city. Our congregation used to stay around the University = Pollock Halls of Residence. There

 

Favourite things to see in Edinburgh = Royal Mile - lots of interesting tourist  sites on there. Whiskey museum; tartan specialists; Royal palace of Holyrood is at one end of it  and Edinburgh Castle on it's mountain overlooking the city is at the other end; Madam Tussauds waxworks is along there; but my favourite is:

There used to be Scottish Country dancing and ballroom dancing in the park on Princes Street ( where all the big shops and railway station are) on a Saturday evening in summer. Nice botanical gardens. and a National Portrait Gallery of famous artwork.

 

On the same road as the  Murryfield Stadium where we used to have conventions on Corstophine Road there is Edinburgh Zoo where China has loaned 2 Pandas that have mated. They are a big attraction for visitors.

 

It's a city of 2 halves - Old City that is below the castle - dates back 500 years narrow streets and then the New Town = Georgian 18th Century classical designed pretty terraces

 

Across the Firth of Forth is the big  aquarium attraction and at the Port of Leith is the Queen's old ship to wander round - The Britannia. 

There are at least 6 congregations in that city in English:   https://apps.jw.org/ui/E/meeting-search.html#/weekly-meetings/search/E/Edinburgh, UK/55.953252,-3.188267/
