World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Appreciate the collections at Scottish National Portrait Gallery and Dynamic Earth. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Rosslyn Chapel and Paxton House. Go for a jaunt from Edinburgh to Dundee to see Discovery Point about 1h 30 min away. There's more to do: step into the grandiose world of Holyrood Park and take an in-depth tour of Surgeons' Hall Museums.
