World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Explore hidden gems such as Rosslyn Chapel and The Necropolis. Visiting St Andrews Links and Coldingham Sands will get you outdoors. Venture out of the city with trips to National Museum of Flight (in North Berwick), Melrose (Abbotsford House & Melrose Abbey) and The Glasgow School of Art (in Glasgow). There's much more to do: steep yourself in history at Grassmarket, walk around Holyrood Park, do a tasting at Cairn O'Mohr Fruit Wines, and admire the masterpieces at Scottish National Portrait Gallery.
