Athens of the North

World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Get some cultural insight at Edinburgh Castle and Edinburgh Old Town. Discover out-of-the-way places like Rosslyn Chapel and Greyfriars Kirkyard. There's still lots to do: see the interesting displays at Royal Yacht Britannia, browse the exhibits of Camera Obscura and World of Illusions, take in the architecture and atmosphere at St Giles' Cathedral, and take in the dramatic natural features at Arthur's Seat.

To find maps and more tourist information, go to the Edinburgh vacation builder site.

Portland, USA to Edinburgh is an approximately 16.5-hour flight. You'll lose 8 hours traveling from Portland to Edinburgh due to the time zone difference. In June, Edinburgh is little chillier than Portland - with highs of 63°F and lows of 48°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 27th (Sun) early enough to go by car to Glasgow.
