We stopped off at a lot of villages and viewpoints along the way to St. Andrews. In between while driving, Gillian told us facts about the history... More

I've spent a fantastic day with Timberbush Tours in the Highlands on their West Highland Lochs, Mountains and Castles day tour. Although the weather was not good (very foggy in the beginning - it was January), I still enjoyed the tour very much, since Scotland is beautiful in ANY weather. :) I loved the snow in the Loch Lomond and...

Having only a few days to visit this trip was the best way to see a bit of the beautiful highlands, Loch Lomond and Stirling castle. I was travelling with a group of elderly Italian people who couldn't walk far so this was perfect . What really made our day was our lovely guide Rose, although she couldn't speak Italian... More

I really liked the tour!! The landscapes were great and our tour guide, Jamie, was nice and funny, he was always giving us details and background about the places we were visiting. I think the only thing I didn't like was that the bus didn't have a toilet, cause sometimes we had to wait two hours to get to one,... More

I booked the 3 day tour to Isle of Skye, Highlands and Loch Ness and it was absolutely amazing. It worth every pound I spent on this tour. Every single place we went was sooo beautiful and breathtaking. I only wished that we had more time on Loch Ness to do the boat tour, but that's ok. And what about... More

Pat the tour guide was extremely knowledgable, funny and not to mention had an awesome thick Scottish accent. Definitely recommend this tour to anyone looking at getting... More

From the moment we boarded the bus to the moment we got off at the end of the day, everything was so well organised and taken care of. Patrick was our tour guide and he was full of cheesy jokes (which were quite funny), and had an enormous knowledge about everything that we saw. He's definitely one of those people... More

Staying in Old Town

Neighbourhood Profile
Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the royal palace – two of Edinburgh’s great set-piece attractions. But there’s lots more exploring to do here down dozens of little alleys, or wynds, while at night the city’s busiest clubs erupt along the Cowgate which is closed to traffic for this purpose.
