You'll find plenty of places to visit near Edinburgh: Bamburgh Castle (in Bamburgh), The Kelpies & The Helix (in Falkirk) and St. Andrews (St Andrews Links & St Andrews Cathedral). There's much more to do: identify plant and animal life at The Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, make a trip to Palace of Holyroodhouse, get a new perspective on nature at National Museum of Scotland, and stroll around Holyrood Park.
