World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Gilmerton Cove and Georgian House. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Edinburgh: Cragside House and Gardens (in Rothbury), Rosslyn Chapel (in Roslin) and Bamburgh Castle (in Bamburgh). The adventure continues: brush up on your military savvy at National Museum of Flight, indulge in some culinary diversions at a local gastronomic tour, explore the world behind art at Scottish National Portrait Gallery, and make a trip to The Kelpies.
