Seeing as this was my fourth visit to Edinburgh in as many months, I was very comfortable with my surroundings. And surprisingly, there were still a few things I hadn’t seen.
First off was Holyrood Palace, the official residence of the British monarch in Scotland. It was pretty cool to see. You start with a guided tour (inside, and around the ruins of Holyrood Abbey) and then you can explore the grounds at your own pace. You also get a great view of Arthur’s Seat.
I spent the rest of the day exploring the Writers Museum and the National Museum (with a lunch break at the Elephant House as is my custom when in Edinburgh).
