World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Palace of Holyroodhouse and Calton Hill. Visit Edinburgh Castle and The Real Mary King's Close for their historical value. And it doesn't end there: take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Arthur's Seat, get curious at Camera Obscura and World of Illusions, tour the pleasant surroundings at Holyrood Park, and pause for some serene contemplation at St Giles' Cathedral.

For maps, reviews, traveler tips, and tourist information, read Edinburgh travel guide.

Use the Route module to find suitable travel options from Charlotte, USA to Edinburgh. Traveling from Charlotte to Edinburgh, you'll lose 5 hours due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Charlotte in July, things will get colder in Edinburgh: highs are around 66°F and lows about 50°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 12th (Tue) so you can travel back home.
