World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Museum-lovers will appreciate Royal Yacht Britannia and Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh. Discover out-of-the-way places like National Wallace Monument and Cragside House and Gardens. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Edinburgh: Bamburgh (Bamburgh Castle, Church of Saint Aidan Bamburgh, & more), Rosslyn Chapel (in Roslin) and Melrose Abbey (in Melrose). There's much more to do: learn about all things military at National Museum of Flight, don't miss a visit to The Royal Mile, step into the grandiose world of Craigmillar Castle, and contemplate the long history of The Real Mary King's Close.
