World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
On the 8th (Mon), pause for some serene contemplation at Rosslyn Chapel, step into the grandiose world of Edinburgh Castle, and then take in the architecture and atmosphere at St Giles' Cathedral. Here are some ideas for day two: steep yourself in history at The Real Mary King's Close, stroll around Holyrood Park, then explore the historical opulence of Palace of Holyroodhouse, and finally make a trip to The Royal Mile.
