EDINBURGH BY FOOT
Edinburgh is relatively compact, so the ideal way to soak up the city's soul is to don comfortable walking shoes and head out to explore. Your Edinburgh accommodation is located just off the Royal Mile, arguably one of the most famous streets in the world. The Royal Mile offers plenty to see and do. Whisky lovers will love the Scotch Whisky Experience, a public display of over 4,000 whiskies with professional whisky tasting tours. For a hair-raising experience, dare to venture into the Real Mary King's Close, a warren of streets, homes and passageways hidden beneath the Royal Mile. The Close is shrouded in myth and mystery, filled with tales of ghosts and foul deeds.
Beyond the Royal Mile, it's worth just setting out and wandering the streets and laneways throughout the Old Town. Along the way, stop in at a pub for a quiet pint, stop in at a traditional sweet shop for a sweet treat, or wander The Mound past The Royal Scottish Gallery, Scottish National Gallery, and the New College of the University of Edinburgh.
