Edinburgh

World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Appreciate the collections at National Museum of Scotland and Royal Yacht Britannia. Popular historic sites such as Edinburgh Old Town and The Real Mary King's Close are in your itinerary. There's lots more to do: kick back and relax at Portobello Beach, brush up on your knowledge of spirits at The Scotch Whisky Experience, browse the exhibits of Camera Obscura and World of Illusions, and explore the historical opulence of Edinburgh Castle.

For reviews, more things to do, photos, and tourist information, use the Edinburgh trip generator.

If you are flying in from Australia, the closest major airports are Edinburgh Airport, Glasgow International Airport and Glasgow Prestwick Airport. In August, plan for daily highs up to 21°C, and evening lows to 11°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 30th (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
