World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Scottish National Portrait Gallery and Dean Village. Change things up with a short trip to Rosslyn Chapel in Roslin (about 30 minutes away). The adventure continues: step into the grandiose world of Edinburgh Castle, take in the dramatic natural features at Arthur's Seat, explore the galleries of Camera Obscura and World of Illusions, and get the lay of the land with Walking tours.
