Warmer months mean longer days and more time to explore. The city of Edinburgh offers travelers plenty of ways to capitalize on sunshine with numerous cultural, historical and sightseeing options.
History buffs can opt for walking tours of iconic city sights dating back hundreds of years, including the iconic Edinburgh Castle and notorious Edinburgh Dungeon. And as in most major European cities, the popular hop-on hop-off bus tours provide an easy, hassle-free way to make the most of limited time here. Those who prefer to take in the architectural highlights will find a handful of stunning churches, like the Rosslyn Chapel and Dunfermline Abbey, which showcase the best of spiritual art and design.
Travelers who want to go a bit further afield can choose to venture to Stirling Castle, Loch Lomond, the Isle of Skye or the Scottish Highlands, where picturesque countryside abounds and visitors are sure to encounter incredible natural (and historical) beauty.
