We leave for Scotland in 22 days. yippee! can't wait. I'll be posting questions for each section of our trip for feedback.
Below are my list of potential things to do in Edinburgh during our three day visit. This is more of a "menu" for us to choose from, not necessary a check off list, but would love feed back as to "must see" vs."lame, don't bother". Love history, architecture, but museums in small doses. Anything we are missing?
Arrive from US at 10:50am on a Sunday. Drop off Luggage at apartment on North Bridge Street off Royal Mile
Wander Royal Mile (Rick Steve's Audio tour) with stops
for Lunch and a couple other stops along the way (from the below) list, depending on how we feel or visit another day if worthwhile.
-St Giles Church (RS self guided tour)
-Museum of Edinburgh
Hike up to King Arthur's seat (weather permitting)
Palace of Holyrood (depending on how we feel and time)
Meals- We'll be in Edinburgh for 3 lunches and 3 dinners. Recommendations?
Afternoon Pub stop- We tend to stop and take a break late afternoon for a beer or wine, so ideas for local pubs?
