World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Get in touch with nature at Arthur's Seat and Calton Hill. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Edinburgh Old Town and Real Mary King's Close. Next up on the itinerary: step into the grandiose world of Edinburgh Castle, steep yourself in history at Palace of Holyroodhouse, examine the collection at National Museum of Scotland, and don't miss a visit to The Royal Mile.
