Day 2: Royal Museum of Scotland in am. Train to North Berwick and Town Walk in pm.
Day 3: Train ride to Stirling. Walk the town. Visit Stirling Castle. Visit the Wallance Monument. Train Back to Edinburgh. Walk Calton Hill in Evening.
Day 4: Tour Day. Bus Tour from Edinburgh up to Loch Ness. 8 Hours in a Bus, short stops, mostly seeing stuff, not being in stuff, but best way to squeeze alot in in one day.
Day 5: Cry a little, go home.
Well ****, now I'm sad. I want to go back. I want to go home.
/goes off to look for jobs in Scotland again....
Great insight, Warfish! I'm sure BH will have a great time following that itinerary. I'd be fine just doing the bolded part everyday!
I guess distillery visits are off the table due to travel time and the shortness of the vacation?
