Edinburgh travel tips

1) Edinburgh's main attractions are easily accessible on foot

All the fun in Edinburgh is concentrated in the city centre, and it's pretty small. If you're only in Edinburgh for a few days, chances are you may not use public transportation and just walk. Don't forget to bring comfortable shoes with you though.

2) Be sure to try the traditional Scottish haggis in Edinburgh

Haggis is a hearty Scottish dish worth trying for all tourists. Haggis resembles loose cutlets and is made from mutton by-products. It is usually served with mashed potatoes, caramelised onions, and whiskey sauce. There is also a vegetarian version of haggis. Look for this meal at any traditional Edinburgh restaurant like The Royal McGregor or Albanah.
