World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Edinburgh Castle and The Real Mary King's Close are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Rosslyn Chapel and St Giles' Cathedral will appeal to history buffs. Change things up with these side-trips from Edinburgh: The Glasgow School of Art (in Glasgow), Scottish Seabird Centre (in North Berwick) and The Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (in Seahouses). The adventure continues: get a new perspective on nature at National Museum of Scotland, take a tour of Royal Yacht Britannia, contemplate the long history of Grassmarket, and take in panoramic vistas at Camera Obscura and World of Illusions.
