Charming Edinburgh!

Palace of Holyroodhouse and Holyrood Abbey

The Great Gallery displays portraits of Scottish kings, both legendary and real. The Queen's Gallery, opened in 2002, as part of the Golden Jubilee celebrations, hosts changing exhibitions from the Royal Collection. The neighbouring 12th-century Holyrood Abbey was founded by King David I.

National Museum of Scotland

In its 16 galleries, containing more than 8,000 artifacts, one can find Dolly the sheep (the world's first cloned mammal), as well as some of Elton John's more elaborate stage costumes. Traditional museum displays also include materials from Ancient Egypt and the infamous Maiden, an early form of a guillotine.

The Royal Botanic Garden

Edinburgh's Royal Botanic Garden is the second oldest such garden in Britain. Within its magnificent 70-acres are a herbarium and Britain's biggest palm house, a tropical house with exotic orchids, an alpine house, a terraced moorland garden, heather garden and an extensive arboretum with rare giant trees from the Himalayas, North America, and China.

Scotland. More Attractions

Cruising Loch Ness and the Caledonian Canal

The canal and each of the lochs is surrounded by some of the most beautiful highland scenery, but no part is more scenic than Loch Ness itself, with the romantic ruins of Urquhart Castle on its hillside above the water. The centre of many ancient myths, the 12th-century castle fell victim to fire some 500 years later. The best views of the castle are from the water, and you can arrive by boat or drift past on a Loch Ness cruise.

Isle of Skye and the Inner Hebrides

The largest of Scotland's inner isles, Skye is especially popular with birders, ramblers, and nature lovers. Its wild, romantic mountain scenery is marked by green valleys, caves, lonely glens, sandy beaches, and rushing waterfalls - quite a remarkable variety for an island just 50 miles long and never more than 15 miles wide.

Riverside Museum and Tall Ship, Glasgow

One of Scotland's most visited attractions, the free Riverside Museum in Glasgow gathers together the history of transportation by land and water in an eye-catching new venue. See trams, locomotives, buses, horse-drawn carriages, and vintage cars, along with ships and other models. A highlight is the authentic reconstruction of 1938 Glasgow streets, with shops you can enter.

Interesting Scottish Celebrations

Burns Night

Date: 25 January
The anniversary of the birth of the poet Robert Burns (1759) at which a "Burns Supper" is consumed and the "Immortal Memory" (a speech in praise of the Bard) is given.

Candlemas Day

Date: 2 February
Candlemas began as a Roman festival to celebrate the return of spring. It is now a Scottish legal "quarter day" when rents and other payments fall due. There is an old traditional poem which said that "If Candlemas Day be bright and fair Half the winter is to come and mair (more). If Candlemas Day be dark and foul Half the winter was over at Yowl (Christmas)."

Beltane's Day

Date: 1st May
A pagan fire festival which goes back to pre-Christian times, originating with Baal in Phoenicia. It was supposed to encourage the crops to grow.
