Day trips from Edinburgh

by aaspy

Hi all,

I am considering day bus trips from Edinburgh to

1. Highlands and the lochs
2. Tour of the border Abbeys

Any recommendations on which particular sites for the highlands? Its my first time in Scotland

Any recommendation on a good tour operator to contact.

Thanks all!

The 'Highlands' covers a vast area of Scotland, much of which is not feasible as a day trip from Edinburgh. It really is very difficult to make a recommendation.

For the Border abbeys there is useful information here

Check out http://www.rabbies.com/ they have a comprehensive list of 1 and 2 day tours. I don’t know if they are a good tour operator, but I do know one or two of their drivers and they are pretty cheerful and they are also pretty well priced. Watch my video Edinburgh story part one for a little bit of an intro to Edinburgh as well.

Having been to Aviemore and Fort William quite recently, I would advise that Aviemore is definitely the nicer of the 2 places. And it isnt far from Inverness and the loch Ness.

Have you thought about a visit to the islands while in Scotland? Arran, Bute, Mull etc

Travel Tips for Edinburgh

Rather large double glazing

by gib157

This is obviously just a fond memory for myself. My friend Jonno on realising he could fit in between two windows in our hostel, tried it, suceeded, and was promtly locked in. Very funny, although he didnt think so!

by Kallista

check out the flat plateau on a hilltop, Arthur Seat. It’s an extinct volcano right in the middle of town. What’s so special about this site … well, it’s where the race in the Chariots Of Fire was filmed.

by Anya_D

If you get a banknote stating 'The Royal Bank of Scotland', do not get scared. Scotland is a very independent land. They have their own national bank, which has the right to issue English pounds. At first I thought that the pounds issued by the Roal Bank of Scotland are acceptable anywhere in England (not outside the UK), but Hevbell, another VT memeber, informed me that it was not so: J1 Scottish banknotes are not acceptable in England, only J1 coins, as for the larger notes, they are acceptable but not everywhere. Another good tip from Hevbell is that there are 3 Scottish banks who produce their own bank notes.

Where a queen was born

by evaanna

Linlithgow is a small town about 25 km west of Edinburgh, best-known as the birthplace of Mary Queen of Scots. The palace where she was born is now a roofless ruin, but its romantic rooms, stairways and passages can still be explored, with the windows offering great views of the park and the loch.
The Queen did not stay here long, seven months later she was taken to Stirling Castle, but she and her successors, the Stuarts, visited the place repeatedly. The last of them to stay there was Bonnie Prince Charlie in 1745. After his unsuccessful attempt to regain the Crown from George III the palace was taken over by the King's son, Duke of Cumberland. When his troops were leaving to march North on 1 February 1746, someone had left an unattended fire, which soon engulfed the whole building, leaving just the burnt-out shell that we can see today.
The Palace grounds with the lawns going down to the loch, home to many species of birds, can be a good place for a picnic.
The palace overshadows the charming St.Michael's Church nearby, which was closed when I went there but at least I was able to walk around their most interesting graveyard.

Ocean Terminal

by orlikins about Ocean Terminal Shopping Centre

Excellent range of restaurants on top floor. Also has a cinema. You have the usual array of UK chain stores like Debenhams, Esprit, BHS etc. For the ladies, I recommend Lush cosmetic store very highly. I purchased 3 products and ended up getting LOADS of free samples :-))

from the top floor of Ocean Terminal, you have an amazing view of the Firth of Forth and the Forth bridge.
