Edinburgh

Athens of the North

World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Bamburgh Castle and Paxton House will appeal to history buffs. Get a sense of the local culture at Rosslyn Chapel and Scottish National Portrait Gallery. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Edinburgh: Discovery Point (in Dundee), St Andrews Links (in St. Andrews) and Cragside House and Gardens (in Rothbury). There's still lots to do: head off the coast to Farne Islands, see the interesting displays at Grace Darling Museum, stroll around Holyrood Park, and steep yourself in history at Gilmerton Cove.
