You'll find plenty of places to visit near Edinburgh: Glasgow (Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum & Buchanan Street). There's lots more to do: explore the historical opulence of Edinburgh Castle, stop by Cadenhead's, steep yourself in history at Palace of Holyroodhouse, and get a taste of the local shopping with Gladstone's Land.
