World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
You'll get in some beach time at St Andrews West Sands Beach and Cocklawburn Beach. Step off the beaten path and head to Surgeons' Hall Museums and Rosslyn Chapel. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Edinburgh: The Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (in Seahouses), Discovery Point (in Dundee) and Bamburgh (Bamburgh Castle, Bamburgh Beach, &more). There's still lots to do: explore the world behind art at Scottish National Portrait Gallery, look for gifts at Chain Bridge Honey Farm, stroll through Gullane Beach, and kick back and relax at Kingsbarns Beach.

For reviews, more things to do, traveler tips, and tourist information, read our Edinburgh road trip planner.

Expect a daytime high around 9°C in December, and nighttime lows around 2°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 19th (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
