Just booked plane tickects and hotel :-)

Post by SixenSix on 26/1/2011, 10:08

Yep me and the missus are going back to Edinburgh (9th - 13th of March). We loved it first time round (March last year) so we've even booked the same hotel in the old part of town (Grassmarket). Can't wait. If anyone has any tips about what to do/see that'd be great. We've been to the castle, Whisky museum, the amazing earth place so we'd like to see other stuff this time around Very Happy

when i first saw this thought you had booked some tickets to see Liverpool in some sort of final! that would be wishful thinking! anyway when i went to Edinburgh i found out they don't really like the English!

Aye there are a few different ghost walks to go on in the city.

Six: Depends what you want to do while you're there, check out www.edinburgh.org for some ideas. Plenty of info on sights, tours and other stuff there.

Also, Undiscovered Scotland has a good wee pub guide on their site. Very Happy

Suggest a night in the pub - sample large amounts of 80 Shilling a very good Scotish Ale - be prepared for a hangover drunken

Well if it were me I'd go and hang around outside the houses of Edinburgh based band We Were Promised Jetpacks and then scream at them when then came to the door.

Yes. A friend of mine went years back and he had a ghost tap him. He loved the city though

80 Shilling is pretty good. I suggest a nice pint of Deuchars or Arran Dark. Or if you're feeling adventurous, a pint of Nessie's Monster Mash. Very Happy

Edinburgh Dungeon is pretty cool. Would also recommend a visit to see HMRY Brittania as she is now a very nice museum piece moored in the area.
