World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Get in touch with nature at Arthur's Seat and Calton Hill. Your inner history buff will appreciate Edinburgh Castle and Edinburgh Old Town. Go for a jaunt from Edinburgh to Glasgow to see Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum about 1h 10 min away. And it doesn't end there: get a new perspective on nature at National Museum of Scotland, explore the historical opulence of Palace of Holyroodhouse, take in the exciting artwork at Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh, and browse the exhibits of Royal Yacht Britannia.

Expect a daytime high around 15°C in October, and nighttime lows around 7°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 22nd (Sat) to allow time to travel back home.
