SHORT DRIVES AND DAY TRIPS

 

Rosslyn Chapel

Falkirk Wheel

 

Close to Edinburgh (30-60 minutes):

Rosslyn Chapel (20-30 mins east) – lovely chapel, featured in The Da Vinci code.
Falkirk Wheel (20-30 mins west) – very cool giant loch wheel (Google it or check out the website to understand!)

Glasgow is a larger city and less old/pretty but still worth a look, if you fancy a day trip.

45-90 minutes from Edinburgh:

Culross (30-40 mins north-east) – old historical village, very pretty.
North Berwick (45 mins north-east) – lovely beach-side town.
