World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Rosslyn Chapel and Edinburgh Castle are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Discover out-of-the-way places like Bamburgh Castle and Glamis Castle. Get out of town with these interesting Edinburgh side-trips: Melrose Abbey (in Melrose) and Cragside House and Gardens (in Rothbury). There's still lots to do: see the interesting displays at Royal Yacht Britannia, explore the historical opulence of Holyrood Park, steep yourself in history at Palace of Holyroodhouse, and make a trip to Real Mary King's Close.

To find maps, reviews, where to stay, and tourist information, read our Edinburgh trip itinerary planner.

In October, daytime highs in Edinburgh are 15°C, while nighttime lows are 7°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 15th (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
