World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Get some historical perspective at Edinburgh Castle and Rosslyn Chapel. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Bamburgh Castle and Cragside House and Gardens. Step out of Edinburgh with an excursion to Coldingham Sands in Coldingham--about 1h 10 min away. There's lots more to do: get a new perspective on nature at National Museum of Scotland, get to know the fascinating history of Edinburgh Old Town, make a trip to The Royal Mile, and stroll around Holyrood Park.

To find reviews and other tourist information, you can read our Edinburgh day trip planning website.
