World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Start off your visit on the 28th (Tue): make a trip to The Royal Mile, stop by Grassmarket, then explore the historical opulence of Edinburgh Castle, then look for gifts at Cranachan & Crowdie, and finally take a stroll through Edinburgh Old Town. On the next day, get a new perspective on nature at National Museum of Scotland and then take in the architecture and atmosphere at Rosslyn Chapel.
