Edinburgh

— 7 nights

Athens of the North

World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Bamburgh Castle and Cragside House and Gardens. Step out of the city life by going to The Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and St Andrews West Sands Beach. Change things up with these side-trips from Edinburgh: Five Sisters Zoo (in West Calder), Berwick upon Tweed (Chain Bridge Honey Farm & Cocklawburn Beach) and Beadnell Bay Beach (in Beadnell). There's much more to do: pause for some serene contemplation at Rosslyn Chapel, explore the activities along Pease Bay, walk around Holyrood Park, and tee off at St Andrews Links.

In September, daily temperatures in Edinburgh can reach 19°C, while at night they dip to 9°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 27th (Thu) so you can travel back home.
