World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Rosslyn Chapel has been added to your itinerary. Visit Edinburgh Old Town and The Royal Mile for their historical value. Visiting Arthur's Seat and Calton Hill will get you outdoors. There's much more to do: get a new perspective on nature at National Museum of Scotland, explore the historical opulence of Edinburgh Castle, view the masterpieces at Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh, and steep yourself in history at Georgian House.

To find photos, more things to do, other places to visit, and other tourist information, you can read our Edinburgh trip planner.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airports are Edinburgh Airport, Glasgow International Airport and Glasgow Prestwick Airport. In May in Edinburgh, expect temperatures between 57°F during the day and 43°F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 15th (Tue) so you can travel back home.
