World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Step off the beaten path and head to Farne Islands and The Elizabethan Walls. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Edinburgh: Bamburgh Castle (in Bamburgh), Cragside House and Gardens (in Rothbury) and National Wallace Monument (in Stirling). And it doesn't end there: explore the historical opulence of Holyrood Park, get outside with The Kelpies & The Helix, pause for some photo ops at Scott Monument, and test your team's savvy at popular escape rooms.

To find where to stay, reviews, other places to visit, and tourist information, read our Edinburgh road trip planner .

In May in Edinburgh, expect temperatures between 17°C during the day and 7°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 25th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
