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 The Necropolis. 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: Bamburgh (Bamburgh Castle & Bamburgh Beach), Rosslyn Chapel (in Roslin) and Cocklawburn Beach (in Berwick upon Tweed). And it doesn't end there: tee off at St Andrews Links, step into the grandiose world of Doune Castle, stop by Edinburgh Old Town, and admire the landmark architecture of Cragside House and Gardens.

To see ratings, traveler tips, more things to do, and more tourist information, you can read our Edinburgh trip itinerary builder app.

In December in Edinburgh, expect temperatures between 9°C during the day and 2°C at night. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 15th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
