Edinburgh

— 4 nights

Athens of the North

World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
The Glasgow School of Art and Rosslyn Chapel are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Edinburgh Castle and Grassmarket will appeal to history buffs. Change things up with these side-trips from Edinburgh: The Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (in Seahouses) and Scottish Seabird Centre (in North Berwick). The adventure continues: get a new perspective on nature at National Museum of Scotland, contemplate the long history of Palace of Holyroodhouse, see the interesting displays at Royal Yacht Britannia, and don't miss a visit to The Real Mary King's Close.
