World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Popular historic sites such as The Real Mary King's Close and St Giles' Cathedral are in your itinerary. Relax by the water at Pease Bay and Thorntonloch Beach. Change things up with a short trip to Coldingham Sands in Coldingham (about 1h 10 min away). There's still lots to do: brush up on your knowledge of spirits at Edinburgh Gin Distillery, get a new perspective on nature at National Museum of Scotland, and take in the dramatic natural features at Arthur's Seat.
