World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Take a break from the city and head to Arthur's Seat and Calton Hill. Bring the kids along to Edinburgh Castle and Royal Yacht Britannia. Get out of town with these interesting Edinburgh side-trips: Glasgow Tigers Speedway (in Glasgow), Bamburgh (Ross Back Sands Beach & St Aiden Beach) and The Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (in Seahouses). There's still lots to do: don't miss a visit to The Royal Mile, contemplate the long history of The Real Mary King's Close, get a new perspective on nature at National Museum of Scotland, and identify plant and animal life at Phoenix Falconry.
