Arrive in Edinburgh, Scotland's historic capital, where you'll be spoilt for things to do and places to visit here.
For history-lovers, a good starting point is the National Museum of Scotland in Chambers Street .Here, you'll discover the story of Scotland from prehistory through to the present day. At the nearby Scottish Genealogical Society library in Victoria Terrace you'll find plenty of fellow travellers and enthusiastic researchers, as well as a wealth of genealogical information and guidance. No appointment is necessary but there is a small charge for non-members.
Edinburgh is also home to the Stewart Society who offer access, by appointment, to their large collection of books and resources to help you continue your family research.
Why not plan your trip around the annual clan gathering? In 2014 it will take place at Ballone Castle in Fearne, The Highlands between 22 - 24 August.
