Edinburgh

— 5 nights

Athens of the North

World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Get some historical perspective at Edinburgh Castle and The Real Mary King's Close. Appreciate the collections at National Museum of Scotland and Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum. Go for a jaunt from Edinburgh to Stirling to see Stirling Castle about 1h 5 min away. There's still lots to do: sample the fine beverages at Edinburgh Gin Distillery, take in the exciting artwork at Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh, take in the architecture and atmosphere at St Giles' Cathedral, and don't miss a visit to The Royal Mile.

In December, plan for daily highs up to 9°C, and evening lows to 2°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 24th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
