World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Visit National Museum of Flight and Melrose Abbey for some beach relaxation. Get in touch with nature at Arthur's Seat and Coldingham Sands. Venture out of the city with trips to National Wallace Monument (in Stirling), Ross Back Sands Beach (in Bamburgh) and Rosslyn Chapel (in Roslin). There's lots more to do: step into the grandiose world of Doune Castle, contemplate the long history of Georgian House, make a trip to Palace of Holyroodhouse, and take a stroll through Edinburgh Old Town.
