World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Step off the beaten path and head to Bamburgh Castle and Scottish National Portrait Gallery. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like National Museum of Scotland and Camera Obscura and World of Illusions. Step out of Edinburgh to go to Bamburgh and see Grace Darling Museum, which is approximately 1h 55 min away. The adventure continues: see the interesting displays at Royal Yacht Britannia, tour the pleasant surroundings at Calton Hill, take in the dramatic natural features at Arthur's Seat, and step into the grandiose world of Edinburgh Castle.
