World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Bamburgh Castle and Rosslyn Chapel. Your inner history buff will appreciate St Andrews Links and The Glenturret Distillery. Change things up with these side-trips from Edinburgh: Berwick upon Tweed (Cocklawburn Beach & Chain Bridge Honey Farm), St Andrews West Sands Beach (in St. Andrews) and St Aiden Beach (in Bamburgh). There's still lots to do: walk around Holyrood Park, kick back and relax at Kingsbarns Beach, tour the pleasant surroundings at Thorntonloch Beach, and explore the activities along Coldingham Sands.

To see photos, other places to visit, and more tourist information, use the Edinburgh trip planner .

If you are flying in from South Africa, the closest major airports are Edinburgh Airport, Glasgow International Airport and Glasgow Prestwick Airport. In December, plan for daily highs up to 9°C, and evening lows to 2°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 31st (Sun) to allow enough time to travel back home.
