World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Step off the beaten path and head to Edinburgh Gin Distillery and Cragside House and Gardens. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Edinburgh: Bamburgh (Bamburgh Castle, Bamburgh Beach, & more), St. Andrews (St Andrews Links, Eden Mill, & more) and Berwick upon Tweed (Royal Border Bridge & Cocklawburn Beach). The adventure continues: learn about winemaking at Cairn O'Mohr Fruit Wines, explore the ancient world of Melrose Abbey, kick back and relax at Seacliff Beach, and test your problem-solving skills at popular escape rooms.

To find photos, more things to do, maps, and more tourist information, use the Edinburgh travel planner.

If you are flying in from Faroe Islands, the closest major airports are Edinburgh Airport, Glasgow International Airport and Glasgow Prestwick Airport. In December, plan for daily highs up to 9°C, and evening lows to 2°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 21st (Fri) to allow time to travel back home.
