World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Get outdoors at Beadnell Bay Beach and The Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Do some cultural sightseeing at Bamburgh Castle and Rosslyn Chapel. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Edinburgh: Five Sisters Zoo (in West Calder), Cragside House and Gardens (in Rothbury) and Berwick upon Tweed (Chain Bridge Honey Farm & Cocklawburn Beach). There's lots more to do: head outdoors with The Kelpies & The Helix, tee off at St Andrews Links, enjoy the sand and surf at Ross Back Sands Beach, and stroll through St Aiden Beach.

To see where to stay, photos, ratings, and other tourist information, you can read our Edinburgh trip planner .

In September, plan for daily highs up to 19°C, and evening lows to 9°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 27th (Thu) so you can travel back home.
