World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
We've included these beaches for you: Yellowcraig Beach and Pease Bay. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Gladstone's Land and Seacliff Beach. Change things up with these side-trips from Edinburgh: Coldingham Sands (in Coldingham) and Belhaven Beach (in Dunbar). There's much more to do: step into the grandiose world of Edinburgh Castle, stop by Doodles, don't miss a visit to The Royal Mile, and contemplate the long history of Palace of Holyroodhouse.

To see reviews, maps, more things to do, and more tourist information, read Edinburgh day trip tool.

In August, daytime highs in Edinburgh are 21°C, while nighttime lows are 11°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 18th (Thu) to allow time to travel back home.
