World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Kids will appreciate attractions like Walking tours and Edinburgh Castle. There's much more to do: don't miss a visit to The Royal Mile, take in the architecture and atmosphere at St Giles' Cathedral, contemplate the long history of The Real Mary King's Close, and take in panoramic vistas at Camera Obscura and World of Illusions.

A land packed with thousands of years of history, Scotland is home to numerous thriving cities and a vibrant population proud of its distinct culture, heritage, and art. The Scottish people are fond of saying "Good things come in small packages," and nowhere is that more true than in their compact homeland. Despite its relatively small size, the country is crammed full of attractions, not the least of which are numerous world-famous golf courses and whiskey distilleries. Though the sun may not always shine here, Scotland is a stunning country renowned for its dramatic scenery of mountains, valleys, hills, green fields, and rugged coastlines, guaranteeing a diverse holiday. While most tourists restrict their itinerary to the historic Highlands, where they search for the mysterious Loch Ness monster, you can also explore the Lowlands’ outstanding natural wonders and flourishing cultural scene.
