"The Heart of Edinburgh" Scotland Things to Do Tip by lazyman_1

Scotland Things to Do: 1,338 reviews and 2,738 photos


The Downtown core of Edinburgh is a great place to spend a day. it is very walkable, Lothian and Princes streets (actually the same street, different stretches receive different names) are the most interesting. Set against the backdrop of the magnificent Edinburgh castle, there is also a nice park complete with numerous statues and fountains.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
