World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
On the 1st (Tue), explore the galleries of Royal Yacht Britannia, step into the grandiose world of Edinburgh Castle, and then get to know the fascinating history of The Royal Mile. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: contemplate the long history of Georgian House, then contemplate the long history of The Real Mary King's Close, then examine the collection at National Museum of Scotland, and finally take in the dramatic natural features at Arthur's Seat.
