World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at St Andrews Links and Cairn O'Mohr Fruit Wines. Do some cultural sightseeing at The Famous Grouse Experience and Edinburgh Old Town. Venture out of the city with trips to Rosslyn Chapel (in Roslin), Bamburgh (Bamburgh Castle & Bamburgh Beach) and Cocklawburn Beach (in Berwick upon Tweed). There's lots more to do: explore the different monuments and memorials at The Necropolis, admire the striking features of Cragside House and Gardens, step into the grandiose world of Doune Castle, and stroll through Glasgow West End.

To find other places to visit, ratings, maps, and tourist information, refer to the Edinburgh online driving holiday planner .

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