World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Edinburgh Castle and Grassmarket 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: Cragside House and Gardens (in Rothbury), Coldingham Sands (in Coldingham) and Rosslyn Chapel (in Roslin). There's lots more to do: play a few rounds at St Andrews Links, get to know the fascinating history of Edinburgh Old Town, stop by R Carter & Sons, and learn about winemaking at Cairn O'Mohr Fruit Wines.

If you are flying in from Qatar, the closest major airports 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. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 7th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
