Scotland's National Museum

Visit the National Museum of Scotland if you're interested in learning and history. It's one of the best museums in all of Scotland.

We are all aware that the weather in Scotland can be somewhat erratic, and because of this, it may be prudent to seek shelter from the rain inside of the museum in the event that it starts to pour.

Discovering something new is a great way to spend the day in this location, whether it be the ancient Egyptian catacombs, the marvels of modern technology, or the beauty of the natural world.

Edinburgh Castle

When you go to Edinburgh, you absolutely cannot miss this attraction, as it is perched atop Castle Rock and affords a breathtaking panorama of the city and its many attractions.

It is the repository of a significant number of Scottish artifacts, including the Honours of Scotland and the oldest crown jewels in all of the United Kingdom.

Take a stroll through the breathtaking grounds of the castle, or even participate in a guided tour or listen to an audio guide, to gain a more in-depth understanding of the history of the impressive castle.

Arthur’s Seat

Arthurs Seat provides spectacular views and a stunning adventure on a sunny day or if you want to brave the cold. This ancient volcano is 251 meters above sea level and offers a 360-degree view of the entire city. Pack a picnic and take one of the many paths and trails to the summit.


You can shop until you drop in Edinburgh. From luxury designer stores to boutiques and high street stores, this is a fantastic location that caters to everyone, regardless of style or budget. Take a stroll down Princes Street, St James Quarter, or George Street in search of your new favorite outfit.

Camera Obscura And World Of Illusions

Explore interactive exhibits that will blow your mind. Explore mirror mazes, vortex tunnels, and the Ames room. This is a great family attraction, rain or shine. Watch as your body transforms in distorting mirrors and the twin exhibition gives you a new perspective on yourself. This city attraction offers a fun afternoon.
