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 Coldingham Bay. Discover out-of-the-way places like Glamis Castle and The Glasgow School of Art. Explore Edinburgh's surroundings by going to Cragside House and Gardens (in Rothbury), Bamburgh (Bamburgh Castle, Ross Back Sands Beach, & more) and Melrose Abbey (in Melrose). There's much more to do: get a new perspective on nature at National Museum of Scotland, explore the historical opulence of Edinburgh Castle, take a stroll through Edinburgh Old Town, and play a few rounds at St Andrews Links.

For traveler tips, ratings, where to stay, and other tourist information, use the Edinburgh tour planner.
