    Now I know this is touristy, but if you went to Rome you would visit the Vatican. Sometimes tourist bits are all you need. Forget shopping in Princes Street and buy nothing from stores on the royal mile. Take a packed lunch and people watch. You could probably go into Moray House and have lunch there. I doubt anyone would question you. The other place I like is the Grass market. You can just imagine the women throwing their personal slops out of the upper windows in times gone by.

    Limit yourself to a couple of days. Edinburgh is extremely busy. The main railway station just off the Royal Mile will get you to Glasgow or Fife in no time. Not worth taking a bus at this stage. But consider taking an open top tour buses as a way to see the Edinburgh most of us are familiar with. Don't even attempt to try to walk around the city centre if you do not like crowds.

    And if you want to spend a day looking up family records that is at the end of Princes Street.

    Hi again

    My favourite places in Edinburgh's Royal Mile. Start at the castle, some fine views even if you don't want to go inside. Then as you walk down the mile, to your left is the Deacon Brodie pub and nearby is the brass X where they hung him. Jekyll and Hyde was based on him. A bit further down you turn right towards Edinburgh Museum and down that road is the cemetery. Back on the royal mile have a peek down some of the winding 'closes' that have been there for hundreds of years. Then there is the Worlds End pub. www.undiscoveredscotland.co.uk The toy museum is worth a visit as is Moray House, (I attended university there). Canongate tollbooth has the people's museum to provide an insight into how people lived in the 19th century and at the bottom there is Holyrood Palace. Check out the guide www.aboutscotland.co.uk/edin/royal.

    I will have to send you this in two sections as the message board limits me to 1000 letters.

About Me

  • About Peanutgallery
    Curious about the rich history and pride that Scotland holds. I have a Scot's pedigree, but sadly no personal knowledge of this magnificent place, yet! I hope to learn more about this beautiful land.
    Nestled in the heart of Alberta, Canada. A simple country life, but a lovely one at that.
