World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Get outdoors at The Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and Bamburgh Beach. Get some historical perspective at Edinburgh Castle and Palace of Holyroodhouse. Venture out of the city with trips to Beadnell Bay Beach (in Beadnell) and Bamburgh Castle (in Bamburgh). There's much more to do: examine the collection at National Museum of Scotland, take in the dramatic natural features at Arthur's Seat, stroll the grounds of Greyfriars Kirk, and don't miss a visit to The Real Mary King's Close.
