World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Step out of the city life by going to Beadnell Bay Beach and Calton Hill. Your inner history buff will appreciate Edinburgh Castle and The Real Mary King's Close. Venture out of the city with trips to Strathblane Falconry (in Strathblane), Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum (in Glasgow) and St Abbs Head National Nature Reserve (in St Abbs). The adventure continues: see the interesting displays at National Museum of Scotland, stroll through BobCat Alpacas, sample the fine beverages at Edinburgh Gin Distillery, and take in the dramatic natural features at Arthur's Seat.
