Arrive in the beautiful city of Edinburgh. The seat of government and, for centuries, home to renowned writers, scientists, philosophers, artists and entrepreneurs, Edinburgh has a wealth of places to visit for those keen to explore their Scottish heritage.
Don't miss Edinburgh Castle (although given its imposing location, it would be hard to do so!) and the Writer’s Museum which celebrates the lives of three of Scotland’s greatest literary figures – Robert Burns, Robert Louis Stevenson and Sir Walter Scott. And be sure to visit The Scott Monument on Princes Street. This impressive tribute to the writer is one of Scotland's most famous landmarks and towers to over 200 ft. Climb the 287 steps to the top - be warned, the internal staircase is very steep and narrow - you’ll be rewarded with fantastic panoramic views over the city.
