World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Edinburgh is known for historic sites, museums, nightlife, sightseeing, and nature. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: explore the striking landscape at Arthur's Seat, steep yourself in history at The Real Mary King's Close, pause for some serene contemplation at St Giles' Cathedral, and stroll through Calton Hill.

To see more things to do, photos, reviews, and more tourist information, refer to the Edinburgh online itinerary creator.

If you are flying in from Iceland, the closest major airports are Edinburgh Airport, Glasgow International Airport and Glasgow Prestwick Airport. In March, plan for daily highs up to 10°C, and evening lows to 1°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 1st (Sat) so you can travel back home.
