when in Edinburgh...
...take the time to go up Arthur's Seat (all the way up), and check out Jackson's on the Royal Mile for a meal (pricey, but worth it), and the Royal Botanical Gardens, and get a deep-fried Mars Bar down by Tollcross (yes, they're real).

Re: when in Edinburgh...
Thanks for the recs! I meant to go to Arthur's Seat when I was in Edinburgh a few years back, but I was only there for a day and I ran out of time. :( It's going to be lovely having three full days just to wander around there.

Sounds like an excellent trip! I hope you have loads of fun. Have you been before?

Yep. Spent about a month in Britain in May 2003 (a description of my travels is somewhere in the archives of this journal, though I don't know if the pics still work). So I'm sure I will have loads of fun! It should be particularly interesting for Chris--he's never been outside North America. :)
