We thoroughly enjoyed Edinburgh (catch up on details) and could easily have extended our stay. Someday, when it’s a bit less congested, we’ll go back. The Royal Mile was hopping with street artists and merchants and tourists in town for the Royal Military Tattoo at the castle, Fringe Festival or the international Music Festival, any of which would be reason enough to visit.
Old Town is flush with shops, pubs and eateries. I was overwhelmed by the beauty and bounty of plaids. Who knew? Not to mention Edinburgh Castle! This was the only castle we toured in depth on our 35th anniversary sail-abration and it was fabulous. Well worth a few hours — even enduring a line to view the Crown Jewels! Enjoy the views.
