World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Explore hidden gems such as Cragside House and Gardens and Rosslyn Chapel. Venture out of the city with trips to Bamburgh Castle (in Bamburgh), Five Sisters Zoo (in West Calder) and National Museum of Flight (in North Berwick). The adventure continues: make a trip to The Royal Mile, explore the world behind art at Scottish National Portrait Gallery, admire the landmark architecture of Scone Palace, and explore the striking landscape at Arthur's Seat.
