World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Visiting Calton Hill and Scottish Seabird Centre will get you outdoors. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Bamburgh Castle and Rosslyn Chapel. Explore Edinburgh's surroundings by going to Cragside House and Gardens (in Rothbury) and The Falconry Centre (in Beattock). There's still lots to do: see the interesting displays at Royal Yacht Britannia, take in the dramatic natural features at Arthur's Seat, stroll around Holyrood Park, and contemplate the long history of The Real Mary King's Close.

To see maps, more things to do, other places to visit, and more tourist information, read our Edinburgh visit planner.

If you are flying in from Greece, the closest major airports are Edinburgh Airport, Glasgow International Airport and Glasgow Prestwick Airport. In March, daily temperatures in Edinburgh can reach 9°C, while at night they dip to 1°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 4th (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
