World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Explore hidden gems such as Grassmarket and Urbane Art Gallery. Shop till you drop at The Found Gallery and Princes Street. There's much more to do: get a new perspective on nature at National Museum of Scotland, steep yourself in history at The Real Mary King's Close, wander the streets of Edinburgh Old Town, and explore the world behind art at Scottish National Portrait Gallery.
