World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Take a break from the city and head to Arthur's Seat and St Andrews Links. Cragside House and Gardens and Real Mary King's Close will appeal to history buffs. Change things up with these side-trips from Edinburgh: Kilspindie Golf Club (in Aberlady) and Rosslyn Chapel (in Roslin). The adventure continues: step into the grandiose world of Edinburgh Castle, take a stroll through Edinburgh Old Town, contemplate the long history of Palace of Holyroodhouse, and get a new perspective on nature at National Museum of Scotland.

In May in Edinburgh, expect temperatures between 17°C during the day and 7°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 1st (Fri) to allow time to travel back home.
