World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Cragside House and Gardens and Coldingham Bay. Get a sense of the local culture at Bamburgh Castle and National Museum of Scotland. Go for a jaunt from Edinburgh to Roslin to see Rosslyn Chapel about 30 minutes away. The adventure continues: take a tour of Royal Yacht Britannia, steep yourself in history at The Real Mary King's Close, get curious at Camera Obscura and World of Illusions, and wander the streets of Edinburgh Old Town.
