World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Cragside House and Gardens and Rosslyn Chapel. Step out of Edinburgh to go to Bamburgh and see Bamburgh Castle, which is approximately 1h 35 min away. There's still lots to do: explore the historical opulence of Edinburgh Castle, take in the architecture and atmosphere at St Giles' Cathedral, see the interesting displays at Royal Yacht Britannia, and learn more about the world around you at National Museum of Scotland.

For other places to visit, more things to do, where to stay, and other tourist information, use the Edinburgh travel app .

If you are flying in from Spain, the closest major airports are Edinburgh Airport, Glasgow International Airport and Glasgow Prestwick Airport. In September, daytime highs in Edinburgh are 19°C, while nighttime lows are 9°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 19th (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
