    Bumping this thread up because I'm going to Scotland next week! This thread proved enormously helpful in planning my itinerary. But I wanted to see if anyone has suggestions for can't-miss things to do, see, or eat in Edinburgh (bonus points if anyone knows of any gluten-free dining options). I'll only be in Edinburgh for 2 days.

    Thanks!

    So I am bumping up this thread because today is my 25th anniversary, and in 30 days we leave for our second honeymoon!!:cheer:
    We have decided to take a coach tour, as our work and life schedules don't allow us the hours and hours it would take to actually plan out a day by day itinerary and all the accommodations required and the routes to get places. And this way, "discussions" about where to go/ what to do/ where to stay etc. are basically eliminated.;)

    We are going with Royal Scottish Tours, and taking the Celtic Classic Tour, which is both Scotland and Ireland. :)
