World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.

And it doesn't end there: take in the dramatic natural features at Arthur's Seat, make a trip to The Royal Mile, engage your brain at Camera Obscura and World of Illusions, and ponder the world of politics at The Scottish Parliament.
