Day Trips from Edinburgh??

We will be in Edinburgh for 4 weeks. Please suggest some day trips by train or bus. Also could do a trip of several days. What are some places farther afield? We like history, small villages, shopping.

Can not do long/strenuous hiking --moderate walking okay.

There is so much to do and see in the Edinburgh area. I find the Undiscovered Scotland website is a good place to start. There is lots of information and pictures.
