I really enjoyed the Mercat tour I took but I think they are all offered only at night

Don't forget that it will get dark early......

From another of the OP's posts, I gather that she needs to be done by 5pm so the tour would have to be before 3 or 3:30pm. I don't think any of them would start that early, after all part of the fun of going on a ghost tour is that it's supposed to be dark and spooky :-)

Travel Tips for Edinburgh

Call of the bagpipes

by evaanna

You can meet them at many places in the city - but I mostly met them in Princes Street, one of the few crowded streets as it was November. Attracted by the sound of their bagpipes, I couldn't resist stopping and listening, admiring the buskers' musical skills, as well as their kilts, sporrans and other elements of Scottish Highland dress. I know not everybody likes the sound of bagpipes, I simply love it. I haven't had a chance to visit Scotland since but, to my great joy, I once saw a Scottish piper in an Oxford street. Do leave your change to them, they certainly deserve it.

Stroll along the high street and soak up the atmosphere, try and catch a rugby match, visit the many drinking establishments and stock up on the calories in the decent curry houses and restaurants to be found. For reviews of over 200 pubs in the city, click HERE.
There are plenty things to do and see in Edinburgh, many more than can be covered in a weekend. Click HERE for more information.
See my 'Must see activities' for a few things we managed to squeeze in around the constant eating!

The Scottish Pound


Scotland is proud to have its own currency. Three Scottish Banks have the right to print Scottish Pound notes. Only one of them prints a One Pound, note which is the only One Pound note in the UK.
The English notes are valid in Scotland and vice versa. Nevertheless, it is recommended to have Scottish notes when being in Scotland and get rid of them when leaving Scotland to England.
During a train trip from Edinburgh to York I saw an English waiter refusing a Scottish note of a woman who wanted to buy some refreshments ...

If you fancy a trip to the beach then Portobello is only about 3 miles (5km) away by bus. There are lots of shops and places to eat and drink and a long promenade by the beach. The Police Station (see 'more photos') is a fine old building and in fact used to be the Town Hall.

A Lothian Bus number 26 will take you there from Princes Street, Edinburgh - the journey is just about 15 minutes.

Harrods of the North

by huwhit about Jenners

Jenners is a true department store - indeed it is referred to as Harrods of the North.

Whilst it is nowhere near as big as the London store, it is packed full of the things that the Scottish gentry would buy.

There is a large foodcourt below - you can always tell the worth of someone if there groceries are in purple Jenners' bags!!

This is an amazing shop - even if you can't afford anything inside, it is worth a peek!! I'd be surprised if you can find anything under 15 pounds!
