World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Visit Palace of Holyroodhouse and Edinburgh Castle for their historical value. Escape the urban bustle at Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh and Arthur's Seat. There's still lots to do: stroll through Calton Hill, make a trip to Royal Mile, take in the architecture and atmosphere at St Giles' Cathedral, and steep yourself in history at Georgian House.

For maps, photos, ratings, and tourist information, refer to the Edinburgh custom trip planner.

Use the Route module to find suitable travel options from Donegal Town, Ireland to Edinburgh. In August, daily temperatures in Edinburgh can reach 21°C, while at night they dip to 11°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 21st (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
