World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Bamburgh Castle and St Andrews Links will appeal to history buffs. Get a sense of the local culture at Rosslyn Chapel and Cragside House and Gardens. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Edinburgh: Discovery Point (in Dundee), Paxton House (in Berwick upon Tweed) and Grace Darling Museum (in Bamburgh). There's still lots to do: step off the mainland to explore Farne Islands, explore the world behind art at Scottish National Portrait Gallery, walk around Holyrood Park, and contemplate the long history of Gilmerton Cove.
