Day trips in Edinburgh #1

Tour the Queen’s residence of Holyrood Palace, followed by a walk up Arthur’s Seat for a full glorious 360 view of Edinburgh and it’s surroundings. Make sure you head back down via the Sheep’s Heid Inn, Duddingston for a well earned meal and pint of fine ale.

If you still have time after that, have a walk around Dr Neil’s Garden, just across the road from the pub.
