The Palace of Holyroodhouse, at the bottom of Edinburgh's Royal Mile, is the King's official residence when he's in Scotland. Visitors can explore the 14 state rooms in this 16th-century palace, still used during royal ceremonies!

Right on Edinburgh's Royal Mile, the Scotch Whisky Experience is an over-18s trip into the world of whisky. This replica distillery will educate you on the tastes of flavors of Scotland's favorite tipple, and probably get you a little tipsy.

The city of Edinburgh is dominated by the huge Edinburgh Castle, part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site and home to the famous Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo, the Crown Jewels of Scotland, and the National War Museum of Scotland. There's a good chance you'll hear some bagpipes.

The Royal Yacht Britannia is one of Scotland's biggest attractions, which should come as no surprise considering the ship was in service as the Queen's yacht for 43 years, from 1954 until 1997. After traveling more than a million nautical miles for Queen and country, Her Majesty's Yacht Britannia is now permanently berthed at Ocean Terminal, Leith, in Edinburgh, Scotland.

The Blair Street Underground Vaults allows visitors to explore a different, darker side of Edinburgh. They were once used as taverns, cobbler shops, and to store materials such as building supplies or – allegedly – stolen corpses! Whatever the story is, these vaults have a rich and fascinating history.
