World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Get some cultural insight at Edinburgh Castle and National Museum of Scotland. You'll explore and learn at Royal Yacht Britannia and Urbane Art Gallery.

There's lots more to do: take in the dramatic natural features at Arthur's Seat, take some stellar pictures from Calton Hill, explore the historical opulence of Palace of Holyroodhouse, and stop by Celtic Craft Centre.
