World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
National Museum of Scotland and Palace of Holyroodhouse are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Museum-lovers will appreciate Royal Yacht Britannia and Camera Obscura and World of Illusions. Change things up with a short trip to Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum in Glasgow (about 1h 45 min away). And it doesn't end there: step into the grandiose world of Edinburgh Castle, pause for some serene contemplation at St Giles' Cathedral, explore the striking landscape at Arthur's Seat, and examine the collection at Museum of Childhood.

Cap off your sightseeing on the 5th (Fri) early enough to travel to Thurso.
