World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Edinburgh Castle and National Museum of Scotland. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to National Wallace Monument and Doune Castle. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Edinburgh: Bamburgh Castle (in Bamburgh), Rosslyn Chapel (in Roslin) and Cragside House and Gardens (in Rothbury). And it doesn't end there: explore the ancient world of Melrose Abbey, browse the exhibits of Royal Yacht Britannia, take in the architecture and atmosphere at St Giles' Cathedral, and wander the streets of Edinburgh Old Town.

To see photos, reviews, other places to visit, and tourist information, you can read our Edinburgh trip planner.

In October, daytime highs in Edinburgh are 15°C, while nighttime lows are 7°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 25th (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
