World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Edinburgh Old Town and Edinburgh Castle are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Visiting Arthur's Seat and Dalhousie Castle Falconry will get you outdoors. Venture out of the city with trips to Glasgow (Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum & Buchanan Street) and Ross Back Sands Beach (in Bamburgh). The adventure continues: learn more about the world around you at National Museum of Scotland, explore the world behind art at Urbane Art Gallery, see the interesting displays at Royal Yacht Britannia, and explore the historical opulence of Palace of Holyroodhouse.
