Of course the city is not all about ghosts. There’s much more in Edinburgh to explore. The Royal Mile, where you will find the main tourist attractions, is beautiful and busy. Edinburgh Castle is amazing, as it is located on the top of an inactive volcano, you will be able to see it in different parts of the city. But you can go up the hill and book half a day to explore the place, because it’s worth it! And if you want to take the day off for royalty, please go to Holyroodhouse Palace. One of the most beautiful and welcoming palaces I have ever seen. Queen Elizabeth often goes there with her puppies once a year.
Oh, it’s also where you’ll eat the best smoked salmon in life. If you feel willing to try others typical dishes, go forward. Unfortunately, my taste is not that curious to eat, for example, guts mixed with potatoes for breakfast. But there’s a lot of great food in the entire Scotland. Edinburgh hosts many great restaurants!
Do you like whiskey? The best single malt are over there. But don’t forget the beers. Scotland is also very famous for its beers and has some breweries open to visit in Edinburgh.
Of course I can not fail to mention the National Museum which is wonderful!
As in most of my travels, the best surprise is people. The Scots are incredible people and very friendly. In the summer I heard that there are incredible festivals that change the mood in the city. Edinburgh also has several incredible pubs and wonderful restaurants. As you can see, a lot to do, lots of places to visit and a lot of cool people to meet. Reasons that explain why Edinburgh is so lovely!
