World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Rosslyn Chapel and Holyrood Park. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Bamburgh Castle and Glamis Castle. Change things up with these side-trips from Edinburgh: Melrose Abbey (in Melrose), Cragside House and Gardens (in Rothbury) and Doune Castle (in Doune). There's still lots to do: explore the historical opulence of Edinburgh Castle, appreciate the extensive heritage of Edinburgh Old Town, explore the galleries of Royal Yacht Britannia, and steep yourself in history at Palace of Holyroodhouse.

To find more things to do, traveler tips, reviews, and tourist information, you can read our Edinburgh road trip tool .

In October, plan for daily highs up to 15°C, and evening lows to 7°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 25th (Thu) so you can travel back home.
