As recommended by the RS staff, my companion and I will arrive in Edinburgh for the start of the Best of Scotland tour a day early (at our hotel by around noon). Any suggestions for how to spend the remainder of that day, and the time before the tour group meets on the following day. We are both avid walkers.
There is a free day in Oban. Has anyone done anything particularly interesting in that area.
Finally, this is the first trip to Europe for the two of us, and the first RS tour. The one carry-on will be an interesting challenge for both myself and my female partner. We would both really appreciate recommendations on what we should leave at home, or unusual items to bring that first-timers would not think to pack. Thanks
