Artemis@BC ........those are exactly my kind of castles!
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.
Two days in Edinburgh?
The Royal Mile
The Scottish National Gallery
The New Town
The Water of Leith Walkway
The Traverse Theatre
Dinner at the Prestonfield Hotel
Henderson's Deli, Bistro, and Restaurant
The Fudge House of Edinburgh I don't think it's got much that's gluten free.
Feel free to send me a private message for more information.
Thanks, Vagabond! Those are great suggestions.
The coolest castle I explored in Scotland is Dunnottar Castle.
Parts of Mel Gibson's Hamlet were filmed there. I also agree with climbing Arthur's Seat. If you do it at night, you get the most incredible view of the castle and city lit up. Sigh - incredible memories.
So I am bumping up this thread because today is my 25th anniversary, and in 30 days we leave for our second honeymoon!!
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.
Have a wondeful trip, quartz!
I think you've just revealed the secret to your long marriage.
Happy anniversary, and have a fabulous trip!
Going on the Rick Steve's 10 day tour starting next Monday-- will let everyone know how it goes! Going for our 30th anniversary! So excited!
Whooooo!! Happy anniversary to you too!
