Edinburgh

World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
On the 18th (Sat), take a tour of Royal Yacht Britannia, explore the historical opulence of Edinburgh Castle, and then get to know the fascinating history of Royal Mile. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: see the interesting displays at National Museum of Scotland, then engage your brain at Camera Obscura and World of Illusions, and then take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Arthur's Seat.

For maps, photos, traveler tips, and more tourist information, you can read our Edinburgh travel guide.
