World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Get in touch with nature at Arthur's Seat and Ross Back Sands Beach. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Edinburgh Castle and Edinburgh Old Town. Get out of town with these interesting Edinburgh side-trips: National Museum of Flight (in North Berwick), Rosslyn Chapel (in Roslin) and Coldingham Sands (in Coldingham). There's lots more to do: examine the collection at Royal Yacht Britannia, steep yourself in history at Grassmarket, make a trip to National Wallace Monument, and pause for some serene contemplation at St Giles' Cathedral.
