Edinburgh

World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Popular historic sites such as The Royal Mile and Edinburgh Castle are in your itinerary. Royal Yacht Britannia and Edinburgh Old Town are good opportunities to explore the local culture. There's lots more to do: explore the striking landscape at Arthur's Seat, contemplate the long history of The Scottish Parliament, step into the grandiose world of Palace of Holyroodhouse, and take some stellar pictures from Calton Hill.

For maps, reviews, and other tourist information, read Edinburgh trip generator.

If you are flying in from Luxembourg, 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. Finish your sightseeing early on the 21st (Mon) to allow enough time to travel back home.
