World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Popular historic sites such as Cragside House and Gardens and Bamburgh Castle are in your itinerary. Step out of the city life by going to Arthur's Seat and Kilspindie Golf Club. Change things up with these side-trips from Edinburgh: The Kelpies & The Helix (in Falkirk), Grace Darling Museum (in Bamburgh) and St. Andrews (St Andrews Links & St Andrews Cathedral). There's much more to do: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Rosslyn Chapel, steep yourself in history at Palace of Holyroodhouse, step into the grandiose world of Glamis Castle, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Holyrood Park.

To find ratings, traveler tips, where to stay, and tourist information, refer to the Edinburgh trip maker .

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airports are Edinburgh Airport, Glasgow International Airport and Glasgow Prestwick Airport. In October, plan for daily highs up to 56°F, and evening lows to 43°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 8th (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
