World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Discover out-of-the-way places like The Scottish Deer Centre and Velvet Hall Alpacas. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Rosslyn Chapel and National Museum of Scotland. Take a break from Edinburgh with a short trip to Scottish Seabird Centre in North Berwick, about 54 minutes away. There's still lots to do: step into the grandiose world of Edinburgh Castle, take in the dramatic natural features at Arthur's Seat, and look for all kinds of wild species at Dalhousie Castle Falconry.
