World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Museum-lovers will appreciate Camera Obscura and World of Illusions and National Museum of Scotland. Get some historical perspective at The Real Mary King's Close and Palace of Holyroodhouse. And it doesn't end there: explore the historical opulence of Edinburgh Castle, examine the collection at Royal Yacht Britannia, get to know the fascinating history of Edinburgh Old Town, and shop like a local with Grassmarket.
