try to go in August during the huge huge huge festival. town looks like it was built with Legos. careful, don't miss the last bus back to the boat. the dock is a long way away. I typed the minimum


We stayed an extra couple of days and explored Edinburgh on our own and stayed at an Air BNB. We again took the double decker bus and then walked and visited many places. We toured the underground on a ghost tour, visited Edinburgh Castle, rode the ferris wheel, went up into Scott Tower....

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.
