World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
The Glasgow School of Art and Royal Yacht Britannia are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Edinburgh Castle and Palace of Holyroodhouse will appeal to history buffs. Change things up with these side-trips from Edinburgh: Rosslyn Chapel (in Roslin), The Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (in Seahouses) and Scottish Seabird Centre (in North Berwick). Next up on the itinerary: learn more about the world around you at National Museum of Scotland, engage your brain at Camera Obscura and World of Illusions, contemplate the long history of Grassmarket, and pause for some serene contemplation at St Giles' Cathedral.

To find maps, ratings, and other tourist information, go to the Edinburgh travel planning website.

In January, plan for daily highs up to 7°C, and evening lows to 1°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 28th (Sun) so you can travel back home.
