World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Palace of Holyroodhouse has been added to your itinerary. There's much more to do: explore the historical opulence of Edinburgh Castle, appreciate the history behind Scott Monument, contemplate the long history of The Real Mary King's Close, and make a trip to The Royal Mile.

To find photos, more things to do, and other tourist information, you can read our Edinburgh day trip tool .

If you are flying in from Iceland, the closest major airports are Edinburgh Airport, Glasgow International Airport and Glasgow Prestwick Airport. In December, daily temperatures in Edinburgh can reach 9°C, while at night they dip to 2°C. You'll have a few hours on the 23rd (Sat) to wrap things up before traveling home.
