edinburgh tours

by iris26

Hey all!

I'm coming to Edinburgh on Saturday for 3 days and am planing to take a one day tour with one of the tour companies. I kind of narrowed it to 3 tours that seem short enough not to spend all the time in the bus. But now I'm stuck cause, other than the propaganda pages of the companies themselves, I couldn't find much info...so, which one seems good?

http://www.rabbies.com/loch_lomond_national_park_1day_tour.asp
http://www.timberbush-tours.co.uk/edinburgh_tours/one_day/loch_lomond.html

I kind of like the highlands one (the first one), cause it includes a walk, but then again, Stirling castle and Loch Lomond seem nice as well, and that one just passes by Stirling castle. Well, any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Iris

I think the first one is probably the best of the three. Killin is a lovely village, Pitlochry is a nice town, and Stirling castle will give you a bit of history. I'm not sure what that Hermitage thing is! Yes, you get a bit of everything and you're not in the bus all the time.
I hope you enjoy your time in Scotland and the weather is good to you!

If you can't make your mind up with those ones, maybe a fresh one will help you decide. http://www.haggisadventures.com/RTG-GB-244.aspx. I went on the Loch Ness trip and it was a fantastic day out and a beautiful drive. You may be interested in the Loch Lomond tour since its less time on the bus.

Loch Ness wasn't anything special, but I wanted to see Ben Nevis which is why I went on that one.

Hope you enjoy your trip!

Get a Lothian Bus day ticket - costs £2.50. Number 37 bus will take you to Roslin where you can visit Rosslyn Chapel of Da Vinci Code fame. Can't remember bus route for Linlithgow but here you will be able to walk around ancient Linlithgoaw Palace. Both can be done in a day.

The Hermitage is a beauty spot near Dunkeld, a sort of wooded area with a fast moving stream - I think there is a water fall and some sort of folly but I don't really remember. Nice spot to get some fresh air and go for a wee stroll.

Hi again,

Thank you all for your tips and advice. In the end we decided to go with the first one - Highlands, Lochs and Glens. Very beautiful. Can't compare though :) But I can say it was a lot of driving even though it wasn't the longest tour, so the 550 km one (with Loch Ness) would have been too much for us. However, we did see a lot of beautiful scenery, how whiskey is made and visited a couple of charming little towns. But there's so much more to see, we'll have to come again :)

Cheers,
Iris

Travel Tips for Edinburgh

The touristy thing to do is to...

by hollyhak

The touristy thing to do is to go to Edinburgh castle but I enjoyed Hollyrood Palace the most because of the story that they weave for you as you walk through. My memory is of my mom and I trying and I mean trying to walk The Royal Mile from Edinburgh Castle to Hollyrood Palace. It had been a little damp (surprise) but was dry at the moment and my mom and I were giggling like we hadn't for a very long time (we were in Scotland after my dad died and she wanted to show me everything)
We were giggling because we were slipping on the hilly cobblestone.

What Is a "Free House"?

by Tom_Fields

Contrary to what the name seems to imply, a "free house" is NOT a place where the booze is free. So what is it?

In Britain, most public houses, or "pubs", are owned by a brewery. Of course, they serve mostly the products of that brewery. Typically, that includes several beers, such as a lager, a bitter ale, a stout, and perhaps a strong cider.

A "free house" is an independent pub, serving whatever the owner (the landlord or publican) chooses to serve. It often has brews made by smaller breweries, what many Americans call microbreweries. So if it's variety you want, then check out a few free houses. Just don't expect the drinks to be free.

Sheep Heid in Duddingston

by sarahjansen

The Sheep's Heid in Duddingston Scotland is a great place to spend in evening of great pub grub, a pint or two and some of the oldest ten pin bowls you will ever find. Arriving in Duddingston is as picturesque as you would expect to find Scotland's oldest surviving pub. Beautifully well maintained gardens, cobbled stoned streets and that village feel where you will find some of the most sought after property in Edinburgh.

I went to this place for a birthday celebration while I lived in Scotland and found no tourists and instead a lively bunch of bantering locals. It has a great atmophere and it you want to skip the touristy royal mile but still want an unique experience this is the place for you. Even if you don't play, don't forget to check out the bowling alley in the back.

The easiest way to get here is probably by taxi from the Newington area/ dalkeith rd in Edinburgh or walk if you are at Arthurs seat.

Glenkinchie Distillery

by keeweechic

The distillery is only about 15 miles from Edinburgh and is set in a small valley. It is the only remaining malt whisky distillery from which this classic malt takes its name. You can take a guided tour and of course do some tasting.

Near Penticaitland off the A6903, off the A68 Edinburgh to Jedburgh

The Best places to go at night in Edinburgh

by ashleigh4985

The Honeycomb- Niddry Street
Absolutly excellent on a tuesday night for the Motherfunk night. Get there late cos it doesn't get started until 1 ish then dance til three. Drinks are expensive there so good idea to drink before , though u don't need to beacuse music and dancing so good.

Cabaret Voltaire - Blair Street
Excellent club in the vaults under the royal mile plays good funk, reggae etc music. Wednesday night i know for sure there is a live band but think there is at other times too. My favourite place in Edinburgh.

Medina - Teviot Place.
Cool underground bar with Morrocan kind of theme. Got rooms which are just mattresses and cushions comfy!!! Mon night they have salsa lessons then music.... thats always fun.

The Brass Monkey - Drummond Street
This is a pub but open til 1 ish. Back room is one giant mattress with cushions...sometimes they play dvds in there apparently tho i haven't seen that yet! Great place to go at any time of the day! none really people seem pretty cool about that kinda stuff
