Day 3 - Edinburgh


Begin the day (and the recovery) with a refreshing walk through Princes Street Gardens. Ease yourself into reality with a browse through the local shops. The Museum of Scotland has a great selection of exhibits for those quieter afternoons. Pear Tree House has a large beer garden which at night is lit up with strings of twinkly fairy lights. Stay for your dinner and long into the night it sometimes offers accoustic music sets. A relaxed and enjoyable end to three nights away.
