World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Step out of the city life by going to Arthur's Seat and Calton Hill. Museum-lovers will appreciate National Museum of Scotland and Camera Obscura and World of Illusions. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Edinburgh: Doune Castle (in Doune), Cragside House and Gardens (in Rothbury) and The National Wallace Monument (in Stirling). There's still lots to do: explore the historical opulence of Bamburgh Castle, take a stroll through Edinburgh Old Town, make a trip to The Real Mary King's Close, and steep yourself in history at St Andrews Links.

For more things to do, traveler tips, where to stay, and other tourist information, read Edinburgh tour planner.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airports are Edinburgh Airport, Glasgow International Airport and Glasgow Prestwick Airport. In May, plan for daily highs up to 57°F, and evening lows to 43°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 19th (Sat) to allow time to travel back home.
