World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Edinburgh Castle and St Andrews Links will appeal to history buffs. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Bamburgh Castle and The Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Change things up with these side-trips from Edinburgh: Coldingham Sands (in Coldingham), Cragside House and Gardens (in Rothbury) and Rosslyn Chapel (in Roslin). And it doesn't end there: explore the striking landscape at Arthur's Seat, take a stroll through Edinburgh Old Town, stop by Jedburgh Chocolate House, and steep yourself in history at Grassmarket.

To find maps, photos, more things to do, and other tourist information, go to the Edinburgh trip itinerary planner.

If you are flying in from Qatar, the closest major aiports are Edinburgh Airport, Glasgow International Airport and Glasgow Prestwick Airport. In October, plan for daily highs up to 15°C, and evening lows to 7°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 7th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
