World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Kick off your visit on the 4th (Wed): get a new perspective on nature at National Museum of Scotland and then explore the historical opulence of Edinburgh Castle. Here are some ideas for day two: examine the collection at Royal Yacht Britannia, explore the striking landscape at Arthur's Seat, then sample the fine beverages at The Scotch Whisky Experience, and finally don't miss a visit to The Royal Mile.
