Edinburgh

World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Explore hidden gems such as Rosslyn Chapel and Holyrood Park. Get a sense of the local culture at Royal Yacht Britannia and Edinburgh Castle. There's still lots to do: explore the striking landscape at Arthur's Seat, step into the grandiose world of Palace of Holyroodhouse, contemplate the long history of The Real Mary King's Close, and take in panoramic vistas at Camera Obscura and World of Illusions.

For reviews, traveler tips, more things to do, and other tourist information, refer to the Edinburgh itinerary planner.

If you are flying in from Canada, the closest major airports are Edinburgh Airport, Glasgow International Airport and Glasgow Prestwick Airport. Expect a daytime high around 19°C in September, and nighttime lows around 9°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 19th (Tue) to allow enough time to travel back home.
