Your plan includes some of its best attractions: explore the historical opulence of Edinburgh Castle, admire the masterpieces at The Queen's Gallery, Palace of Holyroodhouse, contemplate the long history of Palace of Holyroodhouse, and make a trip to The Royal Mile.

Inspirock's itinerary builder makes planning a Edinburgh trip simple and quick.

Joplin, USA to Edinburgh is an approximately 15.5-hour flight. You'll lose 6 hours traveling from Joplin to Edinburgh due to the time zone difference.

Wrap up your sightseeing on the 10th (Tue) to allow time to drive to Glencoe.
