World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Museum-lovers will get to explore National Museum of Scotland and Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum. Get outdoors at Arthur's Seat and Calton Hill. Step out of Edinburgh with an excursion to Buchanan Street in Glasgow--about 1h 5 min away. And it doesn't end there: explore the historical opulence of Edinburgh Castle, wander the streets of Edinburgh Old Town, browse the exhibits of Royal Yacht Britannia, and browse the range of quality goods at Jenners.

To see traveler tips, maps, and more tourist information, read our Edinburgh visit planner.

Expect a daytime high around 9°C in December, and nighttime lows around 2°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 19th (Mon) so you can travel back home.
