World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Edinburgh Old Town and National Museum of Scotland. Let the collections at Royal Yacht Britannia and Camera Obscura and World of Illusions capture your imagination. There's much more to do: step into the grandiose world of Edinburgh Castle, look for all kinds of wild species at Dalhousie Castle Falconry, tour the pleasant surroundings at Calton Hill, and contemplate the long history of Palace of Holyroodhouse.
