We enjoyed our visit to the coves. My wife and I arrived a bit early and waited for another party to show up, so we chatted with gals (SORRY, I forgot your names!) that give the tours and they were both extremely nice. Once inside the coves, there are about 4-5 rooms and there wasnt a lot there, which I guess is the point as they want to keep you guessing as to what exactly went on down there. The guide gave us lots of ideas as to what it could be and lots of theories which was great. We took the bus from the bridge that separates the new town from the old, right over the Waverly train station. We asked the bus driver to let us know where to get off and luckily he was nice enough to do that otherwise we wouldnt have known. Im not sure I would call it a MUST do when in Edinburgh, but it was a good bit of fun. We traveled onto Rosyln chapel by cab after visiting the coves and made a full day of it!
