Edinburgh

World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Edinburgh is known for historic sites, museums, nature, sightseeing, and nightlife. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: examine the collection at Royal Yacht Britannia, steep yourself in history at The Real Mary King's Close, explore the striking landscape at Calton Hill, and step into the grandiose world of Palace of Holyroodhouse.

To see photos, where to stay, reviews, and other tourist information, you can read our Edinburgh holiday planner.

If you are flying in from Singapore, 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 17th (Sun) to allow enough time to travel back home.
