World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Rosslyn Chapel and Scott Monument. Explore Edinburgh's surroundings by going to Bamburgh Castle (in Bamburgh) and Cragside House and Gardens (in Rothbury). Next up on the itinerary: step into the grandiose world of Edinburgh Castle, take a tour of Royal Yacht Britannia, get a new perspective on nature at National Museum of Scotland, and steep yourself in history at The Real Mary King's Close.

For photos, more things to do, traveler tips, and other tourist information, go to the Edinburgh day trip planner.

If you are flying in from Spain, the closest major airports are Edinburgh Airport, Glasgow International Airport and Glasgow Prestwick Airport. Expect a daytime high around 19°C in September, and nighttime lows around 9°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 19th (Tue) to allow time to travel back home.
