Steeped in Celtic and medieval history, Edinburgh is a cultural tapestry that’s largely visually defined by hills, cathedrals, and the bold stone turrets of Edinburgh Castle. The city is also festival-happy - it's the site of several annual celebrations of art, music, theater, and comedy. Cheer on your favorite team at a football or rugby match, then relax over a pint in a local pub. A Scotch Whisky tour is a must, as is pinching your nose and digging bravely into a steaming plate of haggis.

Edinburgh travel guides

3 days in Edinburgh

As the home of the Scottish Enlightenment, Edinburgh is one of Europe's most beautiful cities with a striking landscape that nicely counterpoints a history rich in gore and treachery that inspired Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. In three days you can explore Edinburgh's history, from spooky tales of royal and religious intrigue and strife to underground (literally) adventures, all spiced up by Scotland's water of life and an endlessly evocative skyline.
