World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Edinburgh Old Town and National Museum of Scotland are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Relax by the water at Arthur's Seat and Edinburgh Castle. Venture out of the city with trips to Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum (in Glasgow), Ross Back Sands Beach (in Bamburgh) and Elie Beach (in Elie). The adventure continues: examine the collection at Royal Yacht Britannia, make a trip to The Real Mary King's Close, enjoy the sea views from Calton Hill, and step into the grandiose world of Palace of Holyroodhouse.
