Edinburgh is beautiful but so crowded in the summer. We didn't even try to go to Edinburgh castle when we saw the hoards of people waiting to get in. The Mercat Edinburgh Underground tour was really fun, but you will want to get reservations early. Also, leave the ship early because it takes forever to get into Edinburgh since you have to wait for a tender from the ship and then get a shuttle bus or train from South Queensferry. We had planned to take the train, but they were on strike, so we were stuck with the shuttle bus. The last bus left Edinburgh at 4:30 pm, so our time in town was limited. The independent shuttle was still way cheaper than the ship's excursion bus for doing Edinburgh on your own, though.

Take the train into Edinburgh. Then walk to what you might like to visit. Otherwise, hail a cab. We had Hop On Hop Off bus tickets, but they don't run nearly enough busses for their customers.

Very frustrating and time-consuming to use tenders to get into South Queensferry and then take the (private) shuttle into Edinburgh, but worth it--the most amazing stop on this cruise. Fascinating and beautiful buildings. We want to come back here!

Took the ship's tour to Edinburgh Castle. It was amazing but the size of the crowds was off putting and there wasn't enough time to really have the free time to explore the Royal Mile on your own either.
