World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
You'll get in some beach time at Bamburgh Beach and Beadnell Bay Beach. Do some cultural sightseeing at Bamburgh Castle and National Museum of Scotland. Take a break from Edinburgh with a short trip to The Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in Seahouses, about 1h 55 min away. There's much more to do: explore the striking landscape at Arthur's Seat, explore the historical opulence of Edinburgh Castle, steep yourself in history at The Real Mary King's Close, and stroll through Calton Hill.

In March, daily temperatures in Edinburgh can reach 9°C, while at night they dip to 1°C. You'll have a few hours on the 6th (Wed) to wrap things up before traveling home.
