World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Edinburgh is known for historic sites, museums, nightlife, nature, and childrens museums. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: step into the grandiose world of Edinburgh Castle, appreciate the extensive heritage of Edinburgh Old Town, don't miss a visit to Palace of Holyroodhouse, and examine the collection at National Museum of Scotland.

For photos, where to stay, and more tourist information, read our Edinburgh trip planning website .

In December, plan for daily highs up to 9°C, and evening lows to 2°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 12th (Tue) to allow enough time to travel back home.
