World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Escape the urban bustle at Arthur's Seat and Calton Hill. Get some cultural insight at Edinburgh Castle and National Museum of Scotland. There's lots more to do: contemplate the long history of The Real Mary King's Close, don't miss a visit to The Royal Mile, pause for some serene contemplation at St Giles' Cathedral, and see the interesting displays at Royal Yacht Britannia.

Plan my Edinburgh trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

If you are flying in from Ireland, the closest major aiports are Edinburgh Airport, Glasgow International Airport and Glasgow Prestwick Airport. Expect a daytime high around 21°C in August, and nighttime lows around 11°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 21st (Sun) so you can travel back home.
