World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Step off the beaten path and head to Scottish National Portrait Gallery and Seacliff Beach. Get a sense of the local culture at Rosslyn Chapel and Edinburgh Old Town. Get out of town with these interesting Edinburgh side-trips: Kielder Water & Forest Park (in Kielder), Kingsbarns Beach (in Kingsbarns) and Thorntonloch Beach (in Dunbar). There's more to do: explore the historical opulence of Holyrood Park and sample the fine beverages at Edinburgh Gin Distillery.
