World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Get some historical perspective at The Royal Mile and Edinburgh Castle. National Museum of Scotland and Royal Yacht Britannia are good opportunities to explore the local culture. And it doesn't end there: steep yourself in history at The Real Mary King's Close, wander the streets of Edinburgh Old Town, step into the grandiose world of Holyrood Park, and pause for some serene contemplation at St Giles' Cathedral.
