A glass of Scotch whisky
By the time you leave the Scotch Whisky Experience on the Royal Mile, you'll be a (rather happy) expert on the best hard stuff old Scotland has to offer. Opt for the gold tour — you'll get the biggest bang for your Euro, with five single-malt tastings.
The Palace of Holyrood in Edinburgh, Scotland
Tour lavish Holyrood Palace, the 16th-century building that serves as the British royal residence in Scotland. Then, check out the HMY Britannia, the Queen's floating royal residence — you'll get a glimpse into the bedroom of Princess Di and Prince Charles, as well as Prince William's childhood wombat stuffy, all preserved as they once were.
Head to the Old Town and get spooked as a guide walks you through the eerie side of this storied city. Hear the tales of the ghosts that roam the Mary King's Close, and explore the archaeological evidence that's stranger than fiction.
Dining in Edinburgh is about more than haggis. Sure, you can try the classic Scottish savory pudding of meat, offal, oats, onions and spices cased in a sheep's bladder — and you'll probably be surprise at how tasty the stuff is. But you'll also find modern spins on local and traditional ingredients, like lamb served with heritage potato and wild garlic or Shetland Islands cod with grilled leeks.
Scotland produces some of the finest textiles in the world — don't miss a chance to buy a knit or cashmere sweater or some tweeds and tartan duds. Try the Edinburgh Woollen Mill or Ragamuffin. Insider's tip: The charity shops have textile and antique treasures you won't find anywhere else.
