World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Get a sense of the local culture at Rosslyn Chapel and Linlithgow Palace. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Cragside House and Gardens and Melrose Abbey. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Edinburgh: Glasgow (The Glasgow School of Art, Merchant City, &more), Bamburgh (Grace Darling Museum & St Aiden Beach) and Paxton House (in Berwick upon Tweed). The adventure continues: explore the world behind art at Scottish National Portrait Gallery, stop by Aquila, kick back and relax at Beadnell Bay Beach, and play a few rounds at St Andrews Links.
