Edinburgh travel tips

Edinburgh welcomes millions of travellers every year eager to enjoy the sights of an amazing city .Here are my two top travel tips for anyone visiting the capital for the first time .

1 Castle explorer pass

Scotland has over a thousand castles . Whether you are an Outlander or a Game of Thrones fan or just fascinated with history , Scotland is the best place in the world to explore castles . Edinburgh Castle is probably the most famous castle in the UK. If you want to visit a few castles during your stay I recommend an Explorer Pass , available from Historic Environment Scotland . The pass allows you skip the line entry to all of the castle and country houses run by HES , including Edinburgh Castle, Stirling , Doune and Blackness Castle , Linlithgow Palace and many more places. Castle tours are available from Private tours Edinburgh .
