World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Escape the urban bustle at Seacliff Beach and Pease Bay. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Rosslyn Chapel and Holyrood Park. Step out of Edinburgh with an excursion to Velvet Hall Alpacas in Innerleithen--about 1h 05 min away.

To find reviews, photos, other places to visit, and more tourist information, read our Edinburgh itinerary maker.

If you are flying in from Ireland, the closest major airports are Edinburgh Airport, Glasgow International Airport and Glasgow Prestwick Airport. In February, plan for daily highs up to 8°C, and evening lows to 1°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 10th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
