World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Get out of town with these interesting Edinburgh side-trips: Glasgow (The Necropolis & Walking tours), Snow Factor (in Renfrew) and The Kelpies & The Helix (in Falkirk). And it doesn't end there: look for all kinds of wild species at The Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, admire the masterpieces at Scottish National Portrait Gallery, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Rosslyn Chapel, and capture your vacation like a pro with an inspiring photography tour.

To see other places to visit, ratings, maps, and tourist information, read our Edinburgh journey planner .

If you are flying in from Netherlands, the closest major airports are Edinburgh Airport, Glasgow International Airport and Glasgow Prestwick Airport. Expect a daytime high around 8°C in February, and nighttime lows around 1°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 16th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
