I did the on your own tour from princess. They dropped us about a block over from the royal mile and gave us a map and return time. I wandered in my own to the castle. I prepurchased tickets to the castle at home which really helped as the line was long. The day I was there happened to be the Duke of Edinburgh’s birthday so there was a lot of extra activities going on. Be sure to be there for the daily shooting off of the cannons. I really enjoyed the military tatoo that did a couple of songs in honor of the duke. There are two lines to get to see the Crown Jewels. I recommend going through the tour and not waiting in line in the courtyard. After the castle I made my way to have a fantastic lunch at greyfriars bobby. After popping in and out of some stores I ended my day by going on the free Harry Potter tour that leaves daily from greyfriars.The tour guide takes you to places that inspired the books. Navigation was easy and this was by far my favorite port.

This was our favorite port. We arrived early and had two days to sightsee and loved our time. We stayed at the Principal George Street Hotel and loved it. It is so close to everything that we walked to most of the sights. Our only issue with the hotel is that our one dinner there was okay but not worth repeating. We got Hop On Hop Off tickets and checked out the entire city through the three different routes - great for getting oriented. Things we did in more depth was Edinbough Castle and the Royal Mile - spent hours walking through that area.
