Edinburgh

— 4 nights

Athens of the North

World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Edinburgh Castle and The Real Mary King's Close. Get a sense of the local culture at Rosslyn Chapel and Grassmarket. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Edinburgh: Thorntonloch Beach (in Dunbar) and Seacliff Beach (in North Berwick). There's still lots to do: learn more about the world around you at National Museum of Scotland, take some stellar pictures from Calton Hill, don't miss a visit to The Royal Mile, and take in the dramatic natural features at Arthur's Seat.

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

Expect a daytime high around 13°C in April, and nighttime lows around 3°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 12th (Wed) to allow enough time to travel back home.
