World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Palace of Holyroodhouse and Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Shop till you drop at Heathergems and MacNaughtons of Pitlochry. Change things up with these side-trips from Edinburgh: Pease Bay (in Cockburnspath), Time Lifestyle Boutique (in Dundee), Pitlochry (Pitlochry Station Bookshop & Edradour Distillery), Elie Beach (in Elie), Dunbar (The Found Gallery & Belhaven Beach), Coldingham Bay (in Coldingham), Kingsbarn Beach (in Kingsbarns) and Seacliff Beach (in North Berwick). There's much more to do: take in the dramatic natural features at Calton Hill, tour the pleasant surroundings at Holyrood Park, steep yourself in history at Grassmarket, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at St Giles' Cathedral.

For maps, photos, traveler tips, and tourist information, refer to the Edinburgh travel guide.

The Route module shows you all the different ways you can get to Edinburgh. Expect a daytime high around 19°C in June, and nighttime lows around 9°C.
