World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Glamis Castle and Bamburgh Castle will appeal to history buffs. Museum-lovers will appreciate National Museum of Scotland and Royal Yacht Britannia. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Edinburgh: The Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (in Seahouses), Rosslyn Chapel (in Roslin) and Cragside House and Gardens (in Rothbury). The adventure continues: step into the grandiose world of Edinburgh Castle, steep yourself in history at Real Mary King's Close, take in the dramatic natural features at Arthur's Seat, and take a stroll through Edinburgh Old Town.
