"The touristy thing to do is to..." Royal Mile Tip by hollyhak

Royal Mile, Edinburgh: 18 reviews and 15 photos

Favorite thing: The touristy thing to do is to go to Edinburgh castle but I enjoyed Hollyrood Palace the most because of the story that they weave for you as you walk through.

Fondest memory: My memory is of my mom and I trying and I mean trying to walk The Royal Mile from Edinburgh Castle to Hollyrood Palace. It had been a little damp (surprise) but was dry at the moment and my mom and I were giggling like we hadn't for a very long time (we were in Scotland after my dad died and she wanted to show me everything)
We were giggling because we were slipping on the hilly cobblestone.
