World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Museum-lovers will appreciate Grace Darling Museum and Discovery Point. St Andrews Links and Cragside House and Gardens are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Venture out of the city with trips to Paxton House (in Berwick upon Tweed), Linlithgow Palace (in Linlithgow) and Melrose Abbey (in Melrose). There's much more to do: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Rosslyn Chapel, admire the masterpieces at Scottish National Portrait Gallery, step into the grandiose world of Holyrood Park, and head outdoors with The Kelpies & The Helix.
