My wife and I are going to be in Edinburgh, Scotland from 9/24 - 9/26. Any recommendations on some "Must Sees" or "Must Dos"?
Edinburgh is one of my favorite places! Its a shame you will be there for such a short time, because it's a lot of fun to head into the highlands as well.
If you just have a short amount of time in Edinburgh, it would depend on your interests on what you should do. If you like art, they have a great national portrait gallery and other nice museums. If you like outdoor stuff, hiking Arthur's Seat is great. If you like history and architecture, touring the Scottish Parliament building is incredible, and Holyrood Palace is really interesting as well. The Botanical Gardens are really pretty. Eat some seafood. I found the castle really interesting, but some people have gone and skipped it. You should at least spend some time hanging out in the gardens below, it is one of the best views :) I loved wandering around New Town behind Prince's Street.
Edinburgh Castle is a must see. The Britannia another must see. Cashmere shops must see and must buy. A long walk down Prince street is fun and there are lots of places to stop for a drink or something to eat.
Edinburgh might be my favorite city in the world. Everyone is so friendly and the city is stunning! Here are my tips:
