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 Dalhousie Castle Falconry. Bring the kids along to Edinburgh Castle and Calton Hill. Get out of town with these interesting Edinburgh side-trips: Glasgow Tigers Speedway (in Glasgow), The Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (in Seahouses) and Bamburgh (Ross Back Sands Beach & St Aiden Beach). The adventure continues: don't miss a visit to The Royal Mile, steep yourself in history at The Real Mary King's Close, examine the collection at Royal Yacht Britannia, and engage your brain at Dynamic Earth.
