World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Bring the kids along to The Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and St Aiden Beach. Get outdoors at Arthur's Seat and Dalhousie Castle Falconry. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Edinburgh: Glasgow Tigers Speedway (in Glasgow), Argaty Red Kites (in Doune) and Ross Back Sands Beach (in Bamburgh). There's still lots to do: engage your brain at Camera Obscura and World of Illusions, identify plant and animal life at The Hermitage of Braid and Blackford Hill Local Nature Reserve, make a trip to The Royal Mile, and surround yourself with nature on a nature and wildlife tour.
