Edinburgh

— 4 nights

Athens of the North

World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like The Glenturret Distillery and Cragside House and Gardens. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Glasgow West End and Cairn O'Mohr Fruit Wines. Change things up with these side-trips from Edinburgh: Rosslyn Chapel (in Roslin), Cocklawburn Beach (in Berwick upon Tweed) and Bamburgh (Bamburgh Castle & Bamburgh Beach). There's still lots to do: play a few rounds at St Andrews Links, step into the grandiose world of Doune Castle, visit Edinburgh Old Town, and explore the different monuments and memorials at The Necropolis.

For reviews, more things to do, traveler tips, and tourist information, refer to the Edinburgh online trip itinerary planner.

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