World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Start off your visit on the 30th (Tue): explore the historical opulence of Palace of Holyroodhouse, then pause for some serene contemplation at St Giles' Cathedral, then explore the striking landscape at Arthur's Seat, and finally view the masterpieces at Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh. Here are some ideas for day two: see the interesting displays at Royal Yacht Britannia, explore the historical opulence of Edinburgh Castle, and then take some stellar pictures from Calton Hill.
