World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Get a sense of the local culture at Rosslyn Chapel and St Andrews Links. Get in touch with nature at The Kelpies & The Helix and Thorntonloch Beach. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Edinburgh: Pease Bay (in Cockburnspath) and Kingsbarns Beach (in Kingsbarns). There's much more to do: sample the fine beverages at Edinburgh Gin Distillery, walk around Holyrood Park, and test your team's savvy at popular escape rooms.
