Athens of the North

World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like Rosslyn Chapel and Cragside House and Gardens. Visit Edinburgh Castle and Inchcolm Abbey and Island for their historical value. Venture out of the city with trips to Kilspindie Golf Club (in Aberlady) and St Andrews Links (in St. Andrews). There's still lots to do: take in the dramatic natural features at Arthur's Seat, get a new perspective on nature at National Museum of Scotland, walk around Holyrood Park, and contemplate the long history of The Real Mary King's Close.

For maps, reviews, where to stay, and other tourist information, refer to the Edinburgh trip planner.

If you are flying in from Italy, the closest major aiports are Edinburgh Airport, Glasgow International Airport and Glasgow Prestwick Airport. Expect a daytime high around 17°C in May, and nighttime lows around 7°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 1st (Fri) so you can travel back home.
