Edinburgh is my home city, so any questions you have, please feel free to ask but a trip to this beautiful capital city is a must. You can get there by train or bus easily from Dunfermline. Sights to see are the castle, palace, The Royal Mile with all its closes and quaint old buildings. Princes Street Gardens, any of the museums are worth a visit. There is also a good selection of bus tours if you fancy. Of course, it is a capital city, so there is no end of food offers.

Get into the town centre by car or the local bus

There are a wide variety of buses which pass our area on the main road. Some go to the local shops (TESCO, Aldi, Greggs, Hook and Catch, Macdonalds and Pizza Hut) but of course, you can also walk to these through the woods or via the local streets. Then there is a bus which takes you into the ancient centre of Dunfermline with the High Street and Palace/Abbey.

Scots love to talk

Scots love to talk and we are not shy, so be prepared when they hear an accent for them to start asking where you are from and if you are on holiday. When we travel to another area, they even ask us these questions! They are also kindly and always happy to help you, so please do ask for advice or help if you need.
Sparnaðarleiðir

Search for free attractions

It is worth searching on line for free to visit attractions or cut price tickets. Edinburgh in particular is expensive, so any saving is good.

Its a busy place in summer

Scotland in general is a busy place in summer, so it is wise to book ahead if you want to go to a restaurant or visit an attraction. Out of summer, you can get walk in, but probably still best to book. I am always happy to assist any guest to book, so please just ask.

4 seasons in 1 day

4 seasons in 1 day just about sums up Scotland. You can wake to brilliant sunshine, then have rain, then have cold temperatures and back to sun before the day ends. I always say that each morning when you open the curtains it is a surprise because you never know what is out there until you look! Pack layers and something to keep you dry.
