A great day out in Edinburgh
Get up early and visit the Castle, at 1pm the Castle fires a single canon - originally so you could set your watch to the right time.
Head down the HIGH STREET and turn left in to COCKBURN STREET for some unusual and interesting shops. Remember in Edinburgh your never far from a pub.
On the corner of GEORGE STREET and CASTLE STREET you will find a restaurant called “Oloroso” which is situated on the top of the building (3rd floor) with stunning views of Edinburgh and the castle. You need to look out for the discreet glass door and lift. This is a great place for a coffee and they have amazing bathrooms.
Head along to the Scott Monument on PRINCES STREET taking in GEORGE STREET and ROSE STREET. Well worth the climb to the top.
If you still have the energy one of the best views of Edinburgh and Arthur’s Seat is from CARLTON HILL. Climb the columns and take lots of pictures. Head down the other side of Carton Hill in to ROYAL TERRACE and the top of LEITH WALK on the right you will find a gem of a deli called “Valvona & Crolla” which serves the best cakes and coffee in town, you can also buy the most amazing Italian food and wines. Look out for the statute of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and the Giraffes.
The main Bus depot is at this end of town so try and Edinburgh double Decker bus.
