World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at National Wallace Monument and Scottish National Portrait Gallery. Do some cultural sightseeing at Rosslyn Chapel and Georgian House. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Edinburgh: The Kelpies & The Helix (in Falkirk), Melrose (Melrose Abbey & Abbotsford House) and Linlithgow Palace (in Linlithgow). There's more to do: walk around Holyrood Park and appreciate the history behind Scott Monument.
