World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
We've included these beaches for you: Pease Bay and Yellowcraig Beach. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Gladstone's Land and Portobello Beach. Change things up with these side-trips from Edinburgh: Coldingham Sands (in Coldingham), Belhaven Beach (in Dunbar) and Seacliff Beach (in North Berwick). There's much more to do: step into the grandiose world of Edinburgh Castle, contemplate the long history of Palace of Holyroodhouse, look for gifts at Kathy's Knits, and engage your brain at Camera Obscura and World of Illusions.

To see ratings, traveler tips, maps, and other tourist information, read Edinburgh travel route builder tool.
