Route & dates

World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Scottish National Portrait Gallery and Scott Monument. Change things up with a short trip to Rosslyn Chapel in Roslin (about 30 minutes away). There's much more to do: get the lay of the land with Walking tours, explore the historical opulence of Edinburgh Castle, explore the galleries of Camera Obscura and World of Illusions, and learn more about the world around you at National Museum of Scotland.

For photos, other places to visit, reviews, and more tourist information, read our Edinburgh trip planner.

Expect a daytime high around 7°C in January, and nighttime lows around 1°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 31st (Wed) so you can travel back home.
