World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Edinburgh is known for historic sites, museums, and nightlife. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: step into the grandiose world of Edinburgh Castle, take in the dramatic natural features at Arthur's Seat, learn more about the world around you at National Museum of Scotland, and don't miss a visit to The Royal Mile.

To see reviews, where to stay, other places to visit, and more tourist information, refer to the Edinburgh trip planner.

Glasgow to Edinburgh is an approximately 1.5-hour car ride. You can also take a train; or take a bus. In September, plan for daily highs up to 19°C, and evening lows to 9°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 6th (Fri) to allow enough time to drive back home.

A land packed with thousands of years of history, Scotland is home to numerous thriving cities and a vibrant population proud of its distinct culture, heritage, and art. The Scottish people are fond of saying "Good things come in small packages," and nowhere is that more true than in their compact homeland. Despite its relatively small size, the country is crammed full of attractions, not the least of which are numerous world-famous golf courses and whiskey distilleries. Though the sun may not always shine here, Scotland is a stunning country renowned for its dramatic scenery of mountains, valleys, hills, green fields, and rugged coastlines, guaranteeing a diverse holiday. While most tourists restrict their itinerary to the historic Highlands, where they search for the mysterious Loch Ness monster, you can also explore the Lowlands’ outstanding natural wonders and flourishing cultural scene.
