The inspiring city of Edinburgh is 27 miles away with its romantic Georgian squares, the Royal Mile and the castle, palace and whiskey museum. There is plenty to see with the art galleries, museums, and theatres or if you simply fancy a bit of retail therapy Edinburgh offers a wide range of shops.  if you are looking for something a bit different then try one of the Ghost and ghoul tours of Edinburgh by night.
