World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Visit Abbotsford House and The Necropolis for their historical value. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Cairn O'Mohr Fruit Wines and Melrose Abbey. Change things up with these side-trips from Edinburgh: The Glasgow School of Art (in Glasgow), Rosslyn Chapel (in Roslin) and St Andrews Links (in St. Andrews). There's much more to do: get engrossed in the history at Discovery Point, steep yourself in history at Georgian House, explore the historical opulence of Holyrood Park, and brush up on your military savvy at National Museum of Flight.

To see maps, ratings, other places to visit, and other tourist information, go to the Edinburgh trip maker site .

If you are flying in from Iceland, the closest major airports are Edinburgh Airport, Glasgow International Airport and Glasgow Prestwick Airport. In May, daytime highs in Edinburgh are 17°C, while nighttime lows are 7°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 4th (Sun) to allow time to travel back home.
