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 Cragside House and Gardens. Visit Edinburgh Castle and Rosslyn Chapel for their historical value. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Edinburgh: Glamis Castle (in Glamis) and The Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (in Seahouses). The adventure continues: steep yourself in history at Georgian House, stroll around Holyrood Park, don't miss a visit to The Real Mary King's Close, and take a stroll through Edinburgh Old Town.
