World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Get some historical perspective at Edinburgh Castle and Edinburgh Old Town. Appreciate the collections at National Museum of Scotland and Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh. Change things up with these side-trips from Edinburgh: Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum (in Glasgow) and Stirling Castle (in Stirling). The adventure continues: brush up on your knowledge of spirits at Edinburgh Gin Distillery, make a trip to The Royal Mile, contemplate the long history of Palace of Holyroodhouse, and explore the striking landscape at Arthur's Seat.

To find traveler tips, other places to visit, reviews, and more tourist information, read our Edinburgh trip planning tool.

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