    Gray Line tour to the Highlands

    our tour guide

    Favorite thing: http://www.grayline.com/index.cfm

    Fondest memory: I am usually dead set against organized tours, but since we only had a limited amount of time in Scotland I wanted to see as much as I possibly could. After sifting through the overwhelming number of brochures in the tourist information office, I decided with Grayline Tours day tour to the Highlands. The tour took in a boat trip on Loch Ness, Inverness, the Great Valley, and some spectacular sites in the Highlands. I fpund our guide to be wonderful. He was full of interesting tidbits surrounding the area and was extremely knowledgeable. I would highly reccommend the tour as a great introduction to the area.

    Winter Wonderland Edinburgh

    Favorite thing: See the Edinburgh sky line from {North of the city} Ferry Road it's wonderful. Take the 23 or 27 bus from Hannover Street North 10 mins.
    Get off the 23 when it turns right on Ferry Road second stop walk {Or take}bus to Royal Botannic Gardens. Get off the 27 third stop when it turns left on Ferry Road (take bus} or walk down Arbortum Road to R.B.Gardens.

    Fondest memory: The colour of Edinburgh buses. And walking out of the rail station & seeing the Castle.
    Holyrood Park in the heart of the city is like being out in the country !

    Town walk

    by Cool-123 Updated Dec 7, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Walking around the city of Edinburgh is almost like visiting two different cities very close to each other. To walk around the heart of the Old Town and the New Town will take about an hour at a reasonable walking pace.

    Edinburgh��s chimneys

    Favorite thing: Edinburgh is a great city to walk through.
    Just enjoy the narrow streets of the old town. The houses are nice to see and often have a little street besides or behind it. These so called wynds and closes are fun to explore.
    Also notice the chimneys, which we found very nice to photograph.

    Looking onto Princess St

    Favorite thing: I work in the city and love going walking when i get the chance! You must go up the casttle and do the touristy things but the Gardens (off princess st) is a must! If you have a lovely day, take a picnic. I did this several weeks ago and saw several lovely squirrels go about their business. If yiu get the chance, take a stroll to the Edinburgh Playhouse and see a show. Not like London or NYC but is still memoriable nevertheless. If you are up for a bit of a scare, the Edinburgh Dungeons are a must! Went last year on Halloween...bad idea. I was shaking when i come out! All in all it was a good night!

    Fondest memory: For me, as i work there, i find it funny just walking down Princess Street listening to everyone going about their business. From tourists asking for directions to all the different conversations you hear. Recently Ann Summers the sex opened on Princess St. This caused some contraversy, but hey, if its what the public want...

    by face_2_face Written Aug 25, 2002

    Favorite thing: If anyone is in the Scotland Area and has £70 and three days to spare, i'd strongly reccomend the Haggis Tour, it is a three day tour to the Highlands of Scotland, the office is on the Royal Mile across the river from Edinburgh Castle

    Favorite thing: There's lots of different sightseeing tours around Edinburgh and if you have time, they're a great thing to do. They're quite cheap and a great way to see the sights especially if you only have a short time. You just get on a bus and there's a guide there to tell you all about the sights, tell you funny stories and jokes, and generally make the experience much more enjoyable.

  • Ghost Tour

    by jccope Written Aug 24, 2002

    Fondest memory: Edinburgh has the best walking Ghost Tour. We went on two while in Edinburgh. The first one, City of the Dead Tours, was the best one. We learned a lot about the city in a short amount of time. This is the only Ghost Tour thatactually scared me. It has been featured on the Travel channels show Haunted Edinburgh. The other was a Mercat tour that examined the underground vaults. It was pretty scary but if you can go on the City of the Dead Tour. They start various times after dark on the Royal Mile.

    Favorite thing: There're a lot of things that you MUST do in Edinburgh!

    Begin with the Castle, and then, visit all the way down the High Street (also called Royal mile), wich is the way to go to the Hollyrood Palace (Queen's place!).

    You can go on a 2 stages bus with no roof tour, you'll be able to take very beautiful pictures (Scotland is the paradise of the photographers!). And it's also a good way to find the places that you want to visit.

    Shopping on High Street as well, and Princes street. You have to visit, the old and the new town.

    And really, DON'T miss the Scotland tour and go to the Island of Sky! Amazing, it's all I can say...

    Fondest memory: All the great views, the sceneries...
    Scottish are so welcoming, warm... They like tourists. Obviously, you have to speak a really good English because they are pround of their language (the correct English, like they say). They are proud of who they are. They have a huge History, and if you're interested, they'll tell you all about it.

    I met this native guy who is a guide all around Scotland , he said 'from now, you'll see Scotland with my eyes' and I did...
