Edinburgh

Capital of Scotland and home to the new Scottish Parliament, this cosmopolitan city is readily reached via the ports of Rosyth (North of the Firth of Forth, around 45 minutes drive to the city), Leith (just 2 miles North East of the city centre) and South Queensferry (North of the City under the impressive Forth Bridge – a half hour journey into the city centre). Edinburgh is a veritable cornucopia of delights for the visitor. If it’s your first visit to this fantastic city, you may want to visit Edinburgh Castle which is very much the symbol of the city, or the Royal Palace of Holyrood; the Queen’s official residence in Scotland. If you have been to the city before, perhaps visit the newly completed and controversial Scottish Parliament.

The beautiful Royal Yacht Britannia is also now at home in the port of Leith since being decommissioned in 1997. She has won many awards as a top visitor attraction and is a memorable visit.

A little further afield there are options to tour as far as Glasgow, or Stirling Castle in the Trossachs, as well as North to Perth and Scone Palace.

Some other tour options include:

Edinburgh Tattoo
 

An evening tour to the celebrated Military Tattoo held annually in August.

Edinburgh’s Scottish Parliament
 

A half day tour to tour the new and controversial Parliament, learn more about the Scottish political system and history as well as marvel at the cutting-edge architecture.

Rosslyn Chapel
 

A half day tour out to the chapel recently elevated in visitors’ consciousness after featuring in the best seller ‘The daVinci Code’.

Georgian House
 

A splendidly restored example of the Georgian buildings, interiors and lifestyle so much in evidence in the history and architecture of Edinburgh

Newhailes
 

A lovely National Trust house on the outskirts of Edinburgh

Dalmeny
 

A charming private estate owned by the Roseberry family. Visits are exclusive to your group only. Dalmeny houses magnificent and important collections of Napoleana and French Antique Furniture. When possible, Lady Roseberry herself enjoys welcoming groups and imparting some of her extensive knowledge of the collections. Evening gala dinners or cocktail parties are also an option at Dalmeny.
