    Edinburgh Castle
    The gardens
    Various Ghost walks - most of them go to the underground vaults

    shops on Princes Street
    the zoo

    watch out for the squirrels in the gardens they are vicious,lol

    Would highly reccomend a Ghost walk.

    And a highland tour of single malts in any decent pub or hotel.

    I'd recommend that you look at ]The Oracle. It should help you find places to visit and is usually up to date and comprehensive.

    A bus tour is a good way to see the city and get your bearings edinburghtour.com/

    A walk where they talk about ghosts strangely! ;-) Much recommended if they go into the underground vaults. Castle also a given and also enjoyed the Whisky experience just outside the entrance to the castle too :thumbsup:

    Essentially Its a guided tour, usually done by an actor, who usually are very knowledgeable and very entertaining.

    You get to see another side of Edinburgh and hear about its very dark and gory history. The underground vaults are amazing especially the stories behind them.

    Makes a change from sitting in a pub all night.

    Ghost walk is brillant especially on a dark evening,summers not the best time to do it

    It depends what the person likes to see but this is one of my favourite spots to visit, the other is out at Cramond which if you time correctly you can walk across the causeway to the island. However I'm more of a walking/outdoors person rather than going on tours or similar.
