World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Edinburgh Old Town and Stirling Castle. Change things up with a short trip to Falkirk Wheel in Falkirk (about 54 minutes away). There's lots more to do: explore the striking landscape at Calton Hill, view the masterpieces at Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh, get in on the family fun at The Edinburgh Dungeon, and take in nature's colorful creations at Princes Street Gardens.

To see traveler tips, reviews, maps, and tourist information, refer to the Edinburgh vacation planner.
