World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Take a break from the city and head to Arthur's Seat and Calton Hill. You'll explore and learn at Royal Yacht Britannia and Camera Obscura and World of Illusions. There's still lots to do: explore the historical opulence of Edinburgh Castle, get a new perspective on nature at National Museum of Scotland, wander the streets of Edinburgh Old Town, and pause for some serene contemplation at St Giles' Cathedral.
