My husband and I will be in Edinburgh from Oct 8 - Oct 12. It turns out that we will now be leaving on the evening of the 12th, rather than in the morning and with a little shuffling we now have an open day in our itinerary. I'm trying to decide if we should maybe attempt a day trip from Edinburgh to get more of a feel for the Scottish highlands outside of the city. Is there a good place to do a quick day trip to that would give us a feel for the highlands and wouldnt be too difficult to manage on public transportation? I was thinking Stirling, but wasnt sure if there were other good options?
On a somewhat un-related question - how far in advance should we arrive at the EDI airport for our flight to Paris? Our flight is at 17:55 on a Sunday.
thank you for all of your help!
