World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Royal Yacht Britannia and Edinburgh Castle. Step out of the city life by going to Ardtoe Beach and Arthur's Seat. Change things up with a short trip to Seacliff Beach in North Berwick (about 1 hour away). Next up on the itinerary: learn more about the world around you at National Museum of Scotland, step into the grandiose world of Palace of Holyroodhouse, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Old Saint Paul's Scottish Episcopal Church, and don't miss a visit to Real Mary King's Close.
