World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Shop till you drop at Grassmarket and Direct Pets. Your inner history buff will appreciate St Andrews Links and Glamis Castle. Venture out of the city with trips to St. Andrews (St Andrews Cathedral & St Andrews Golf Company), Ardross Farm Shop (in Elie) and Cragside House and Gardens (in Rothbury). The adventure continues: gain a rich perspective with The Glasgow School of Art, make a trip to National Wallace Monument, take a stroll through Merchant City, and look for gifts at Cranachan & Crowdie.

If you are flying in from Australia, the closest major airports are Edinburgh Airport, Glasgow International Airport and Glasgow Prestwick Airport. In July, plan for daily highs up to 21°C, and evening lows to 11°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 6th (Fri) so you can travel back home.
