Edinburgh is known for historic sites, museums, nightlife, nature, and parks. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: explore the historical opulence of Edinburgh Castle, wander the streets of Edinburgh Old Town, see the interesting displays at National Museum of Scotland, and take in the dramatic natural features at Arthur's Seat.

Dallas, USA to Edinburgh is an approximately 16-hour combination of flight and train. You can also fly; or do a combination of car and flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 6 hours traveling from Dallas to Edinburgh. Traveling from Dallas in November, expect Edinburgh to be little chillier, temps between 48°F and 35°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 5th (Tue) so you can travel to Beauly.
