My husband, myself, and our 21 year old son will be in Edinburgh from the 27th of December until 3rd January. We plan to participate in some of the Hogmanay festivities - torchlight procession, fireworks, etc. - which all look like great fun! We will also take day trips to Glasgow (we have a cousin there), Stirling, and possibly Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park. Plus the big sights...Holyrood House, the Royal Mile, etc.
Anything else going on in Edinburgh during that time that might be fun? We love traditional Scottish music (big Dougie MacLean fans!), cultural events, and small venues to hear good music. Any good recommendations for interesting restaurants?
Thanks so much in advance for anything you are all willing to share!
