World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
On the 8th (Tue), take a tour of Royal Yacht Britannia, then get a new perspective on nature at National Museum of Scotland, and then explore the striking landscape at Arthur's Seat. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: steep yourself in history at Georgian House, then explore the historical opulence of Edinburgh Castle, and then make a trip to The Royal Mile.
