World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Edinburgh is known for historic sites, museums, nature, nightlife, and childrens museums. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: get a new perspective on nature at National Museum of Scotland, engage your brain at Camera Obscura and World of Illusions, explore the striking landscape at Arthur's Seat, and pause for some serene contemplation at St Giles' Cathedral.

For maps, reviews, ratings, and tourist information, use the Edinburgh travel planner.

If you are flying in from Iceland, the closest major airports are Edinburgh Airport, Glasgow International Airport and Glasgow Prestwick Airport. In January, plan for daily highs up to 7°C, and evening lows to 1°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 26th (Thu) early enough to go by car back home.
