World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Edinburgh: The National Wallace Monument (in Stirling), Glasgow (The Necropolis & The Burrell Collection) and Snow Factor (in Renfrew). And it doesn't end there: pause for some serene contemplation at Rosslyn Chapel, pause for some photo ops at Scott Monument, explore the world behind art at Scottish National Portrait Gallery, and don't miss a visit to Greyfriars Bobby Memorial Statue.
