Exploring Edinburgh – Some Must Do’s Along The Way

Everyone should visit Scotland at one point in their lives. Although its rolling hills and breath-taking views are often compared to that of rural New Zealand, it really is a country really like no other. Scotland offers it all. Whether you are a city slicker wanting to experience some of the world’s best cities, or a county bumpkin wanting to relax amongst tranquil peaceful settings, you can experience both these things in Scotland.

If the the hustle and bustle of city life is for you, here are some of the amazing things to see and do in Edinburgh:

  • Spend some time in the Lothians and visit the National Museum of Flight. Four hangars have aircraft that detail the history of aviation with both military and civilian craft.
  • Visit Linlithgow Palace, the birthplace of Mary, Queen of Scots. The chapel, fountains and wildlife- rich lowlands and loch make it a spectacular place.
  • Hopetoun House has remained virtually unchanged in over three centuries, and was built in the 1600′s. For architecture enthusiasts, the experience is impossible to pass by.
  • Tour the House of the Binns, occupied by the same family since 1612. Two hundred acres and a collection of furniture spanning four centuries is well worth seeing.
