World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Take a break from the city and head to The Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and Arthur's Seat. Edinburgh Castle and Grassmarket will appeal to history buffs. Get out of town with these interesting Edinburgh side-trips: Rosslyn Chapel (in Roslin), Coldingham Sands (in Coldingham) and Glamis Castle (in Glamis). There's still lots to do: contemplate the long history of Cragside House and Gardens, browse the exhibits of Royal Yacht Britannia, take in the architecture and atmosphere at St Giles' Cathedral, and stroll around Holyrood Park.

To find where to stay and tourist information, refer to the Edinburgh visit planner.

In August, daytime highs in Edinburgh are 21°C, while nighttime lows are 11°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 31st (Fri) to allow enough time to travel back home.
