Edinburgh

World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Edinburgh Castle and The Real Mary King's Close are good opportunities to explore the local culture. The Royal Mile and Rosslyn Chapel will appeal to history buffs. Get out of town with these interesting Edinburgh side-trips: Doune Castle (in Doune), The National Wallace Monument (in Stirling), Snow Factor (in Renfrew) and Glasgow (The Necropolis, The Glasgow School of Art, & more). And it doesn't end there: get a new perspective on nature at National Museum of Scotland, take in the dramatic natural features at Arthur's Seat, test your problem-solving skills at popular escape rooms, and step into the grandiose world of Palace of Holyroodhouse.

To see reviews, maps, ratings, and tourist information, go to the Edinburgh trip itinerary planner.

The Route module can give you travel options from your home to Edinburgh. In January, plan for daily highs up to 7°C, and evening lows to 1°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 24th (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
