World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Escape the urban bustle at Arthur's Seat and The Hermitage of Braid and Blackford Hill Local Nature Reserve. Get a sense of the local culture at Edinburgh Castle and National Museum of Scotland. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Edinburgh: The Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (in Seahouses) and Cairn O'Mohr Fruit Wines (in Errol). There's still lots to do: identify plant and animal life at Dalhousie Castle Falconry, explore the historical opulence of Palace of Holyroodhouse, brush up on your knowledge of spirits at The Scotch Whisky Experience, and don't miss a visit to The Royal Mile.

To find ratings, where to stay, and other tourist information, refer to the Edinburgh trip planner.

In October, plan for daily highs up to 15°C, and evening lows to 7°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 21st (Sat) so you can travel back home.
