Edinburgh boasts a great variety of tours from city sightseeing buses to ghost walks, limousine rides and unique trike excursions.

With several bus tours to choose from, there is no better way to travel between attractions than on an open-top sightseeing bus. Each is distinctive, providing a unique insight into the city, and with hop-on hop-off tickets valid for at least 24 hours you have the freedom to see the sights in your own time. Combination packages also make it easy for you to visit attractions such as the famous Edinburgh Castle in addition to using the buses.

A visit to Scotland would not be complete without sampling a dram of the national drink and there is no better place to do this than a local distillery, such as the picturesque Glenkinchie Distillery in East Lothian with its fascinating exhibition. You can also enjoy a trip to the historic Rosslyn Chapel in Midlothian.

Why not take some time out of your city break to experience more of Scotland? From the breathtaking scenery of the Highlands to the individual character found on each of the islands, you are sure to be captivated by the country’s magnificent regions.
