World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Do your shopping at The Glasgow School of Art and Chain Bridge Honey Farm. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Bamburgh Castle and St Andrews Links. Change things up with these side-trips from Edinburgh: The Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (in Seahouses), Grace Darling Museum (in Bamburgh) and Rosslyn Chapel (in Roslin). There's much more to do: admire the masterpieces at The McManus: Dundee's Art Gallery & Museum, identify plant and animal life at Scottish Seabird Centre, steep yourself in history at Grassmarket, and stroll around Holyrood Park.
