World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Pease Bay and Cove Harbour. Visiting Norman's Law Walk and Cocklawburn Beach will get you outdoors. Explore Edinburgh's surroundings by going to Rosslyn Chapel (in Roslin), Kilspindie Golf Club (in Aberlady) and National Wallace Monument (in Stirling). There's still lots to do: look for all kinds of wild species at The Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, get outside with The Kelpies & The Helix, admire the striking features of Cragside House and Gardens, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Holyrood Park.

For other places to visit, where to stay, maps, and tourist information, refer to the Edinburgh trip builder .

If you are flying in from Switzerland, the closest major airports are Edinburgh Airport, Glasgow International Airport and Glasgow Prestwick Airport. In October, daily temperatures in Edinburgh can reach 15°C, while at night they dip to 7°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 19th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
