Half Day in the City
In the City
No trip to Edinburgh is complete without a visit to the iconic Edinburgh Castle. After exploring the ramparts, enjoy a spot of lunch and a whisky or cocktail at one of the many restaurants and bars on the historic Royal Mile, before walking down The Mound, through Princes Street Gardens, and returning to The Chester Residence in the West End. A spot of shopping en route is also recommended.
Out of town
Often referred to as Scotland’s finest stately home, Hopetoun House is a stunning example of 18th Century architecture, with its magnificent Georgian interiors remaining largely unchanged for three centuries. There are also 150 acres of landscaped gardens, and all just a short drive or bus journey from Edinburgh. For bus times contact travel line on 0871 200 22 33 or visit: www.travelinescotland.co.uk)
