World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Explore hidden gems such as Bamburgh Castle and Grassmarket. Head to Direct Pets and Swallow Fishfor some retail therapy. Venture out of the city with trips to St Andrews Links (in St. Andrews), Seacliff Beach (in North Berwick) and Rosslyn Chapel (in Roslin). The adventure continues: look for all kinds of wild species at The Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, explore the world behind art at Scottish National Portrait Gallery, take in the dramatic natural features at Arthur's Seat, and kick back and relax at St Aiden Beach.

Expect a daytime high around 9°C in December, and nighttime lows around 2°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 21st (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
