Elegant and eccentric, Edinburgh bundles up the best of Scotland, complete with cliff-top castle, green hills and blasting bagpipes. Its two monikers—Athens of the North and Auld Reekie—tell different tales. One weaves its way around grand ideas and Greek-like monuments, while the other dips underground in a haunted maze of tunnels and vaults. Exit Edinburgh to set out into Scotland's scenery.
