My husband and I will be in Edinburgh from 14 December to 18 December. We'd like to take a day tour out of the city on either the 15, 16 or 17 (Sun-Tues). I'd be happy for suggestions. I am interested in seeing Loch Ness (just because...maybe I'll see Nessie....), but I know my husband is entranced at the idea of seeing castles. It is his first trip to the UK, and castles will be totally new territory for him.
I guess I have two questions.... Any recommended companies for the tours? Any recommended itineraries? I'm not sure what to expect for the weather (other than cold and wet), and I am not sure if that should be a factor in our choice. We're both young and healthy enough to do any walking or moving about at any of the locations, but not sure if the weather will cooperate with spending a lot of time outside.
We could do two separate day tours, but I want to make sure that we leave enough time for the "biggies" actually in Edinburgh.
