World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Bamburgh Castle and Georgian House. Visit Edinburgh Castle and Rosslyn Chapel for their historical value. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Edinburgh: Cragside House and Gardens (in Rothbury), The Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (in Seahouses) and Glamis Castle (in Glamis). There's lots more to do: explore the galleries of Royal Yacht Britannia, explore the world behind art at Scottish National Gallery, get a new perspective on nature at National Museum of Scotland, and contemplate the long history of The Real Mary King's Close.
