World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Step off the beaten path and head to St Andrews Links and The Famous Grouse Experience. Do some cultural sightseeing at Rosslyn Chapel and Holyrood Park. Explore Edinburgh's surroundings by going to National Wallace Monument (in Stirling), Edradour Distillery (in Pitlochry) and Glasgow (The Necropolis & Glasgow Cathedral). Next up on the itinerary: step into the grandiose world of Glamis Castle, admire the striking features of Craigmillar Castle, test your team's savvy at popular escape rooms, and take in the spiritual surroundings of St Andrews Cathedral.
