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

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.
