Edinburgh

World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Get in touch with nature at The Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and Dalhousie Castle Falconry. Edinburgh Old Town and National Museum of Scotland are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Change things up with a short trip to Cairn O'Mohr Fruit Wines in Errol (about 1h 20 min away). There's lots more to do: examine the collection at Royal Yacht Britannia, explore the striking landscape at Arthur's Seat, make a trip to The Royal Mile, and explore the historical opulence of Edinburgh Castle.

To see photos, ratings, other places to visit, and tourist information, refer to the Edinburgh itinerary maker.

If you are flying in from Hong Kong, the closest major airports are Edinburgh Airport, Glasgow International Airport and Glasgow Prestwick Airport. In October, plan for daily highs up to 15°C, and evening lows to 6°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 21st (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
