As the cultural heart of Scotland, Edinburgh is a land of castle-topped hills and home to one of the best performing art scenes around, where its performance venues are as grand as the landscape.

You’ll have your pick of sights to see, including Edinburgh Castle, Palace of Holyroodhouse and Arthur’s Seat, with the chance to spend the day in Glasgow or Perth. Seek out the Old Town’s tucked-away treasures before toasting with a post-performance whisky in one of the traditionally Scottish pubs.
