Edinburgh

World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Explore hidden gems such as Rosslyn Chapel and Holyrood Park. There's still lots to do: examine the collection at Royal Yacht Britannia, steep yourself in history at Palace of Holyroodhouse, explore the striking landscape at Arthur's Seat, and wander the streets of Edinburgh Old Town.

To find where to stay, reviews, and tourist information, refer to the Edinburgh trip itinerary maker.

If you are flying in from India, the closest major airports are Edinburgh Airport, Glasgow International Airport and Glasgow Prestwick Airport. In September, plan for daily highs up to 19°C, and evening lows to 9°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 8th (Fri) to allow enough time to travel back home.
