Edinburgh

World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Change things up with a short trip to Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum in Glasgow (about 1h 55 min away). There's lots more to do: step into the grandiose world of Edinburgh Castle, explore the galleries of Royal Yacht Britannia, enjoy breathtaking views from Camera Obscura and World of Illusions, and stroll through Calton Hill.

For more things to do, photos, maps, and other tourist information, refer to the Edinburgh travel itinerary planner.

If you are flying in from Canada, the closest major airports are Edinburgh Airport, Glasgow International Airport and Glasgow Prestwick Airport. In May, plan for daily highs up to 15°C, and evening lows to 6°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 30th (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
