Edinburgh

Athens of the North

World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
On the 4th (Tue), take a tour of Royal Yacht Britannia, then explore the striking landscape at Arthur's Seat, then examine the collection at National Museum of Scotland, and finally get curious at Camera Obscura and World of Illusions. Keep things going the next day: pause for some serene contemplation at St Giles' Cathedral, contemplate the long history of The Real Mary King's Close, then don't miss a visit to The Royal Mile, and finally explore the historical opulence of Edinburgh Castle.
