World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Rosslyn Chapel and Scottish National Portrait Gallery. Take a break from the city and head to Kielder Water & Forest Park and Thorntonloch Beach. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Edinburgh: Seacliff Beach (in North Berwick) and Kingsbarns Beach (in Kingsbarns). There's still lots to do: sample the fine beverages at Edinburgh Gin Distillery, stroll around Holyrood Park, and wander the streets of Edinburgh Old Town.

For maps, traveler tips, photos, and other tourist information, you can read our Edinburgh journey planner.

In January in Edinburgh, expect temperatures between 7°C during the day and 1°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 15th (Sun) to allow time to travel back home.
