Edinburgh

World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Rosslyn Chapel and Edinburgh Old Town are good opportunities to explore the local culture. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Holyrood Park and Georgian House. And it doesn't end there: learn more about the world around you at National Museum of Scotland, step into the grandiose world of Edinburgh Castle, appreciate the extensive heritage of The Royal Mile, and take in the dramatic natural features at Arthur's Seat.

To see where to stay, other places to visit, more things to do, and more tourist information, you can read our Edinburgh vacation builder.

The Route module shows you travel options from your home to Edinburgh. In June, daytime highs in Edinburgh are 19°C, while nighttime lows are 9°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 23rd (Fri) to allow time to travel back home.
