“A great option if it's raining during your stay and you want to be indoors, the museum is free although there are occasionally exhibitions you can pay to see. It's bigger than you might think and recommend you give yourself a few hours at least to look around!”

Palace
“At the foot of the Royal Mile. This is the Queen's official residence in Edinburgh and has connections with Mary, Queen of Scots and Bonnie Prince Charlie. A great place to find out about Scottish royal history. Tours of the palace run regularly but it's best to check opening times in advance. It's a working residence and as such can be closed at short notice for Royal visits. ”
