Great trip up! Loved learning all about the country and different sites as we went along. Wish the boat tour was a little longer but if was also cold and windy the day I went, so glad it wasn't real long.

that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the
place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as
the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal
Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the
