World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
You'll get in some beach time at St Andrews West Sands Beach and Gullane Beach. Step off the beaten path and head to Cocklawburn Beach and Seacliff Beach. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Edinburgh: The Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (in Seahouses), Bamburgh (Bamburgh Castle, Bamburgh Beach, &more) and Discovery Point (in Dundee). The adventure continues: kick back and relax at Kingsbarns Beach, contemplate the long history of St Andrews Links, get engrossed in the history at Surgeons' Hall Museums, and admire the masterpieces at Scottish National Portrait Gallery.
