Day in edinburgh witha 83yr old and a 2 yr old

Coming up to visit my 2 year old grandson on Saturday with my elderly father, aged 83 who cannot walk too far and am struggling to find somewhere which is suitable for both ..............we will have about four hours with the little one. I had thought about the castle but I was not sure about how dad would cope - went to the zoo a couple of months ago. Any suggestions ???

Thanks

The Botanic Gardens might suit both. Space for the wee one to run around and fairly flat for your Dad.

I also like the Gallery of Modern Art. Lovely grounds and an awesome tearoom.

Holyrood? I don't know if the Parliament is open on Saturdays but there are plenty of grassy areas (and paddling ponds) outside the Parli, as well as the Palace, Queens Gallery.
