World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Escape the urban bustle at Ross Back Sands Beach and Pease Bay. Explore hidden gems such as Cairn O'Mohr Fruit Wines and Holyrood Park. Get out of town with these interesting Edinburgh side-trips: The Elizabethan Walls (in Berwick upon Tweed), Seacliff Beach (in North Berwick) and Coldingham Sands (in Coldingham). There's much more to do: explore the ancient world of Melrose Abbey, identify plant and animal life at St Abbs Head National Nature Reserve, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Rosslyn Chapel.

If you are flying in from Saudi Arabia, the closest major airports are Edinburgh Airport, Glasgow International Airport and Glasgow Prestwick Airport. In October, plan for daily highs up to 15°C, and evening lows to 7°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 14th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
