Edinburgh

World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
On the 31st (Mon), appreciate the extensive heritage of The Royal Mile, explore the historical opulence of Edinburgh Castle, and then contemplate the long history of Georgian House. Here are some ideas for day two: step aboard Royal Yacht Britannia, then explore the striking landscape at Arthur's Seat, then take in the architecture and atmosphere at St Giles' Cathedral, and finally don't miss a visit to The Real Mary King's Close.

July in Edinburgh sees daily highs of 66°F and lows of 50°F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 1st (Tue) to allow enough time to travel back home.
