World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Holyrood Park and Georgian House. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Edinburgh: Rosslyn Chapel (in Roslin), The Kelpies & The Helix (in Falkirk) and Five Sisters Zoo (in West Calder). And it doesn't end there: explore the historical opulence of Edinburgh Castle, contemplate the long history of The Real Mary King's Close, see exotic creatures in open habitats at Blair Drummond Safari and Adventure Park, and pause for some serene contemplation at St Giles' Cathedral.

June in Edinburgh sees daily highs of 20°C and lows of 10°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 17th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
