World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Get some historical perspective at Edinburgh Castle and Palace of Holyroodhouse. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Bamburgh Castle and Cragside House and Gardens. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Edinburgh: Rosslyn Chapel (in Roslin) and Coldingham Sands (in Coldingham). The adventure continues: learn more about the world around you at National Museum of Scotland, make a trip to The Royal Mile, visit Edinburgh Old Town, and examine the collection at Royal Yacht Britannia.
