World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Kick off your visit on the 13th (Tue): get to know the fascinating history of The Royal Mile, then learn more about the world around you at National Museum of Scotland, and then take in the dramatic natural features at Arthur's Seat. Keep things going the next day: see the interesting displays at Royal Yacht Britannia, step into the grandiose world of Edinburgh Castle, then sample the fine beverages at The Scotch Whisky Experience, and finally don't miss a visit to The Real Mary King's Close.
