2) Learn how Scotch whiskey is made at The Scotch Whiskey Heritage Center in Edinburgh
Scotland is the birthplace of Scotch whiskey. When you are in Edinburgh, take a few hours to visit The Scotch Whiskey Heritage Center, which is at the top of the Royal Mile.

3) Visit the Harry Potter locations on a day trip around Edinburgh
If you're a Harry Potter fan, head from Edinburgh to the Lochaber area. For example, you can see the railroad on the high Victorian Glenfinnan Viaduct bridge that the Hogwarts Express raced across. Or admire the Loch Shiel lake, over which Harry Potter flew a hippogriff in the Prisoner of Azkaban movie. Other filming locations in the area include Loch Arkaig, Loch Eilt, Loch Morar, Steall Falls, Rannoch Moor, and others.
