Hello! I just booked airfare to Edinburgh in November :) This was a great opportunity for my friend and me, so I couldn't pass it up! However, my family just took a "trip of a lifetime" to Europe in July. That's 100% paid for, but we had 8-9 months to prepare. This time around, I only have 3 months, so I want to be as budget conscious as possible without sacrificing the fun.
How much should I expect to budget for meals? We have a flat, so I plan on getting groceries for breakfasts and maybe lunch. I'm not a big foodie but I do enjoy the "experience" of a great food- however, I don't need that every day. I can get by with very basic foods as well :) Is 30-50 pounds a day reasonable for mostly budget food with a nice meal once a day (and possibly really nice meal once or twice the whole trip)?
Also, what should I budget for transportation? We are planning on a trip to Glasgow one day, but the rest of the time will be in Edinburgh. If we venture out more, that will be by using a tour company, which is a different budget category.
