We are arriving at Edinburgh at about 3.00 pm on a Thursday (in July) and would be leaving on Sunday morning.
We are 2 adults and a child and essentially want to visit the main tourist attractions.
I would be grateful if you could help me in these questions:
1. Is a day trip to the Highlands on a coach tour worth it, given that we have only a couple of days in Edinburgh? A lot of threads in this forum say that we would spend most time traveling.
2. Should I go for an Edinburgh pass, or are there other offers like 2 for 1, like in London. Alternately, is it better that we buy individual tickets for the attractions.
3. We have a flight from the International airport at 9.00 am on Sunday. We would have to be the airport by 6.00 am or so. We are to stay in Ibis on Southbridge Street. How much would the taxi fare cost to the airport? I understand that there are airlink buses, but not sure if that is the right thing to do, given that we have flights to take and early in the morning as well.
