World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Grassmarket as well as Princes Street Gardens. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Edinburgh Castle and Palace of Holyroodhouse. Get in touch with nature at Arthur's Seat and Dalhousie Castle Falconry. Change things up with these side-trips from Edinburgh: Ross Back Sands Beach (in Bamburgh) and Glasgow (The Riverside Museum of Transport and Travel & Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum). There's still lots to do: stop by Edinburgh Old Town, get a new perspective on nature at National Museum of Scotland, take in the local highlights with Walking tours, and contemplate the long history of Inchcolm Abbey and Island.

To find other places to visit, traveler tips, reviews, and more tourist information, refer to the Edinburgh online day trip planner.
