Edinburgh Castle 4.0 stars
Castle, Fortification, Palace - #1 of 22
My trip to Edinburgh Castle was a pleasant one. The admission price is reasonable. If I remember correctly it was 11 pounds for an adult. I would suggest walking around a little exploring the castle without a guide first. The panoramic views ... [more ]
Arthur's Seat 4.0 stars
Park - #2 of 22
Edinburgh’s skyline has two defining features: one is the castle, sternly overlooking the city and reminding the inhabitants of its militant past; the other is the rocky crags of Arthur’s Seat. One of four hill forts, this one dating back about ... [more ]
Princes Street 4.0 stars
Other Urban Landmark - #3 of 22
Princes Street is the Edinburgh’s main high street with fantastic shopping one side and a pretty park the other. The street houses all the normal high street favorites in beautiful buildings of imposing Scottish stone. The great thing about ... [more ]
Holyrood Abbey 4.0 stars
Monastery - #4 of 22
If you're looking for things to do in Edinburgh for an afternoon, but aren't that interested in the castle or shopping on the Royal Mile, head down the hill to Holyrood. The palace houses the ruined remains of an abbey. Originally built for ... [more ]
Greyfriar's Bobby 4.0 stars
Sculpture, Monument, Statue, Memorial Place - #5 of 22
Greyfriar's Bobby - th famous dog who sat by the grave of his master, a greyfriar, three days and nights and then was seen no more...a little, really very little, bronze statue of Bobby, the Syke Terrier between Goerge 4th Bridge and ... [more ]
Edinburgh Festival 4.0 stars
Entertainment, Festival, Amusement Park - #6 of 22
During August the capital city of Scotland hosts the Edinburgh Festival and turns into the theatre and comedy hotspot of the world. Every spare space is converted into a theatre and performers take to the streets to lure in the visitors. There ... [more ]
Museum of Scotland 4.0 stars
Museum, Gallery, Exhibition - #7 of 22
First off, let me say that the Museum of Scotland is huge and unlike any other that I've ever visited in the past. There are three levels which wrap around the inside of the building to give the already incredible main lobby a spectacular view ... [more ]
Holyrood Park 4.0 stars
Park - #8 of 22
Holyrood park is an incredible park, right in the city of Edinburgh. Across the street from the Scottish parliament building and the Palace of Holyrood lies miles of trails, wildlife, solitude, and incredible views over the city as well as the ... [more ]
Grassmarket 4.0 stars
Square - #9 of 22
This area is famous in Edinburgh for its very high density of bars and restaurant around one square and is popular with students and stag and hen parties because of this. Don’t let that put you off though, it’s a really nice place for a drink and ... [more ]
The Royal Mile 5.0 stars
Other Urban Landmark - #10 of 22
The Royal Mile, the historical heart of Edinburgh, is a long long street right through the city from Edinburgh Castle right down to Hollyroodhouse, the residence of the Queen. There are beautiful old pubs, houses, tourist shops, and a cute little ... [more ]
The Meadows 5.0 stars
Park - #11 of 22
The Meadows is a beautiful park reight next to the college buldings near George 4th Bridge. Cherry trees line the pebble paths, so you best come here in April when the pink blossoms are in full bloom. Students are everywhere an theatre groups ... [more ]
The People's Story 5.0 stars
Museum, Gallery, Exhibition - #12 of 22
Of all places, I found it odd that The People's Story was located in what was, in fact, a prison. It is a museum that is dedicated to the “normal” people and their work, whether they were a barman, a housemaid, a servant or any other type of ... [more ]
Scottish Parliament Building 4.0 stars
Government Building - #13 of 22
The locals were divided about this ultra-modern building when it was first built, but any casual visitor will not fail to be captivated by the sheer ambitiousness of the whole thing, known as Holyrood. Based at the opposite end of the Royal Mile ... [more ]
Edinburgh Underground Tour 4.0 stars
Other Urban Landmark - #14 of 22
What do you do if space is limited and you want to build a large, new government building? One option is to tear down some other buildings, or you could simply build over the top of them. Edinburgh has done both over the centuries, and the ... [more ]
Edinburgh International airport 4.0 stars
Airport - #15 of 22
Edinburgh International airport is not far from the city centre and there are a few different choices for getting there. A taxi will cost around £15, but will be quick during rush hour because they can use bus lanes. The 100 Airlink bus ... [more ]
First Scotrail 3.0 stars
Train Station - #16 of 22
Having done a fair bit of travel around the UK and Europe by rail, I’d have to say that overall Scotrail isn’t one of the better servers. The trains were constantly full and lacked the creature comforts such as power sockets, toilets (in some ... [more ]
National Gallery of Scotland 3.0 stars
Museum, Gallery, Exhibition - #17 of 22
The NLS is the biggest library of Scotland, and that means: there are only books about Scotland. So for those who seek works abot more varied topics, the library will be a trifle disappointing, nevertheless a quick drop by is definitely ... [more ]
The Writers Museum 4.0 stars
Museum, Gallery, Exhibition - #18 of 22
Situated in an incredibly old, snug, though very beautiful setting, the Writers' Museum is one of Edinburgh's lesser known attractions. Perfect for those of us who enjoy writing and reading, it will also bore many party goers to death. In this ... [more ]
Scotch Whisky Heritage Center 3.0 stars
Museum, Gallery, Exhibition - #19 of 22
I like whiskey. If you too have discovered the beauty and richness of this “water of life” (usquebaugh in Gaelic, which is where the word whiskey comes from), or want to sample a few varieties, then a stop at the Whiskey Museum on the Royal Mile ... [more ]
Peffermill Sports Fields 3.0 stars
Stadium, Sports Arena - #20 of 22
I watched the 2009 hockey Celtic Cup at the University's Peffermill Fields and had a great time despite the cold (in June). While they are about a half hour walk from the city, it was nice to get out and see some of the suburbs. The bar staff ... [more ]
