Day 1 - Edinburgh


Start early in order to pack in the many sights on offer. Take the brisk walk to the Royal Mile and stop off at Wee Windaes Restaurant for a traditional Scottish lunch. If you are lucky you might be seated at the iconic 'wee windaes table', which offers great views onto the mile. Afterwards reach the summit and visit Edinburgh Castle for the afternoon, time it well and you could be there for the 1pm gun salute. Take a walk through Princes Street Gardens from the hotel to the Cafe Royal Oyster Bar for dinner. Finish your evening with a show at the Edinburgh Festival Theatre.
