World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Get some historical perspective at Edinburgh Castle and St Giles' Cathedral. Step out of the city life by going to Arthur's Seat and Nature & Wildlife Tours. Venture out of the city with trips to Kielder Water Bird of Prey Centre (in Kielder), Cairn O'Mohr Fruit Wines (in Errol) and The Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (in Seahouses). Next up on the itinerary: get to know the fascinating history of Edinburgh Old Town, take some stellar pictures from Calton Hill, admire the masterpieces at Scottish National Gallery, and step into the grandiose world of Palace of Holyroodhouse.
