I will be joining a group of photographers for a photography tour next month. We have a set itinerary (that I have no control over). But I will have some small slivers of time and am looking for recommendations. I will arrive in Edinburgh on June 15 at 9:25 am. I have my hotel booked in Edinburgh for that evening. My tour begins at 11:00 am the next day. Any suggestions on what to see or do that first day? Either in Edinburgh or a brief day trip?
During the tour we will be doing the following. Edinburgh: walking New Town, exploring Royal Mile, Scott Monument, Edinburgh Castle
Inverness: Linlithgow Palace on the way if time allows, explore Inverness and Black Isle, Fairy Glen Falls, Portknockie, Loch Ness
Visit Ullapool, Loch Broom, Inverpolly Nature Reserve, Ardvreck Castle, Kylesku Bridge.
On our last day we have breakfast and then head back to Edinburgh where the tour ends around noon. I will have that afternoon and evening in Edinburgh and have a flight at 11 am the next day. Should I try to squeeze something into that last day and if so, what? Thank you in advance!
