World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Escape the urban bustle at Ross Back Sands Beach and Seacliff Beach. Explore hidden gems such as Holyrood Park and Cairn O'Mohr Fruit Wines. Get out of town with these interesting Edinburgh side-trips: Coldingham Sands (in Coldingham), The Elizabethan Walls (in Berwick upon Tweed) and Rosslyn Chapel (in Roslin). There's lots more to do: admire the striking features of Melrose Abbey, enjoy the sand and surf at Pease Bay, and identify plant and animal life at St Abbs Head National Nature Reserve.
