World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
For shopping fun, head to House for an Art Lover or Jenners. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like National Museum of Scotland and The Glasgow School of Art. Change things up with these side-trips from Edinburgh: Bamburgh (St Aiden Beach, R Carter & Sons, &more) and Direct Pets (in Berwick upon Tweed). There's still lots to do: explore the historical opulence of Edinburgh Castle, admire the masterpieces at Urbane Art Gallery, browse the exhibits of Royal Yacht Britannia, and take a stroll through Edinburgh Old Town.

To find reviews, photos, where to stay, and more tourist information, read our Edinburgh trip maker website.
