Edinburgh

— 4 nights

Athens of the North

World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
We've included these beaches for you: Portobello Beach and Pease Bay. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Gladstone's Land and Yellowcraig Beach. Change things up with these side-trips from Edinburgh: Seacliff Beach (in North Berwick), Belhaven Beach (in Dunbar) and Coldingham Sands (in Coldingham). 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 take in panoramic vistas at Camera Obscura and World of Illusions.
