World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Escape the urban bustle at Arthur's Seat and Portobello Beach. Edinburgh Castle and The Real Mary King's Close will appeal to history buffs. Get out of town with these interesting Edinburgh side-trips: Seacliff Beach (in North Berwick) and Ardtoe Beach (in Acharacle). There's much more to do: get a new perspective on nature at National Museum of Scotland, take in the architecture and atmosphere at St Giles' Cathedral, step into the grandiose world of Palace of Holyroodhouse, and take a stroll through Edinburgh Old Town.
