World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Get a sense of the local culture at Edinburgh Castle and The Real Mary King's Close. Visiting The Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and Scottish Seabird Centre will get you outdoors. And it doesn't end there: examine the collection at National Museum of Scotland, don't miss a visit to The Royal Mile, engage your brain at Camera Obscura and World of Illusions, and take in the dramatic natural features at Arthur's Seat.

To see other places to visit and other tourist information, read our Edinburgh trip planner .

If you are flying in from Malta, the closest major airports are Edinburgh Airport, Glasgow International Airport and Glasgow Prestwick Airport. December in Edinburgh sees daily highs of 9°C and lows of 2°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 10th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
