World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Explore hidden gems such as Cragside House and Gardens and Holyrood Park. Get some historical perspective at Bamburgh Castle and Edinburgh Castle. Go for a jaunt from Edinburgh to Roslin to see Rosslyn Chapel about 30 minutes away. There's lots more to do: take in the dramatic natural features at Arthur's Seat, contemplate the long history of The Real Mary King's Close, step into the grandiose world of Palace of Holyroodhouse, and wander the streets of Edinburgh Old Town.
