World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Edinburgh Castle and Edinburgh Old Town are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Visiting Arthur's Seat and Dalhousie Castle Falconry will get you outdoors. Venture out of the city with trips to Ross Back Sands Beach (in Bamburgh) and Glasgow (Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum & Buchanan Street). There's still lots to do: examine the collection at Royal Yacht Britannia, explore the world behind art at Urbane Art Gallery, learn more about the world around you at National Museum of Scotland, and steep yourself in history at Grassmarket.

For where to stay, photos, more things to do, and more tourist information, refer to the Edinburgh day trip planning website .

If you are flying in from Malta, the closest major airports are Edinburgh Airport, Glasgow International Airport and Glasgow Prestwick Airport. August in Edinburgh sees daily highs of 21°C and lows of 11°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 18th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
