Athens of the North

World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like Pickering's Gin Distillery and Water of Leith Walkway. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Edinburgh: Melrose (Abbotsford House & The Leaderfoot Viaduct, also known as the Drygrange Viaduct), Jedburgh Abbey (in Jedburgh) and The Black Watch Castle & Museum (in Perth). And it doesn't end there: explore the historical opulence of Edinburgh Castle, sample the fine beverages at Edinburgh Gin Distillery, sample the tasty concoctions at Eden Mill, and learn about winemaking at Cairn O'Mohr Fruit Wines.

For other places to visit, where to stay, reviews, and tourist information, refer to the Edinburgh holiday planner.

Coventry to Edinburgh is an approximately 3.5-hour flight. You can also take a train; or drive. Plan for little chillier nights when traveling from Coventry in November since evenings lows in Edinburgh dip to 1°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 18th (Wed) to allow enough time to drive to Glasgow.

Scotland's Style Capital

Scotland’s largest city, Glasgow is known for its cultural heritage and the friendliness of its people.
Explore hidden gems such as Falls of Clyde and Glasgow West End. Change things up with these side-trips from Glasgow: National Wallace Monument (in Stirling) and Dunblane Cathedral (in Dunblane). And it doesn't end there: admire the natural beauty at Glasgow Botanic Gardens, sample the tasty concoctions at Tennents Wellpark Brewery, deepen your understanding at University of Glasgow, and brush up on your knowledge of spirits at The Clydeside Distillery.

Plan my trip to Glasgow with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

Getting from Edinburgh to Glasgow by car takes about 1.5 hours. Other options: take a train; or take a bus. In November, plan for daily highs up to 10°C, and evening lows to 2°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 21st (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
