Cute and small. That is what Edinburgh is for me … Thoroughly enjoyed the several days in this town. The Old Town, with its cobbled streets and the crown jewel (Edinburgh Castle!) is a delight. The Whiskey Museum was a nice interlude as well.
We also took a bus tour through the Scottish Highlands, including the Loch Ness. My kids went ga-ga over Nessie 🙂 We ended up buying several Nessie dolls. The weather was fickle, bright periods mixed with overcast conditions. The highlands is very beautiful when the sun shines in full glory.
The Edinburgh Castle of course, IMHO, is the prime attraction in Edinburgh. Perched on top of a hill, it is very prominent.
