World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Explore hidden gems such as Rosslyn Chapel and Scottish National Portrait Gallery. 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), Glasgow (The Glasgow School of Art & The Necropolis) and Melrose (Abbotsford House & Melrose Abbey). There's lots more to do: explore the galleries of Discovery Point, contemplate the long history of Grassmarket, admire the striking features of Georgian House, and learn about winemaking at Cairn O'Mohr Fruit Wines.

For ratings, where to stay, traveler tips, and other tourist information, go to the Edinburgh trip planning website .
