World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Venture out of the city with trips to Glasgow (Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum & Glasgow Tigers Speedway). There's still lots to do: step into the grandiose world of Edinburgh Castle, contemplate the long history of The Real Mary King's Close, take in the dramatic natural features at Arthur's Seat, and learn more about the world around you at National Museum of Scotland.

For other places to visit and more tourist information, use the Edinburgh trip itinerary planning website .

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airports are Edinburgh Airport, Glasgow International Airport and Glasgow Prestwick Airport. In May, daytime highs in Edinburgh are 58°F, while nighttime lows are 43°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 27th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
