World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Bamburgh Castle and St Andrews Links. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Rosslyn Chapel and Cragside House and Gardens. Change things up with these side-trips from Edinburgh: Cocklawburn Beach (in Berwick upon Tweed), Doune Castle (in Doune) and The Glenturret Distillery (in Crieff). There's still lots to do: do a tasting at Cairn O'Mohr Fruit Wines, kick back and relax at Bamburgh Beach, stroll the grounds of The Necropolis, and wander the streets of Edinburgh Old Town.

To find reviews, more things to do, traveler tips, and other tourist information, you can read our Edinburgh trip planner.

In December, daily temperatures in Edinburgh can reach 9°C, while at night they dip to 2°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 15th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
