With the acceptance if the criminal fraud trump building luxury (cheap trash) in Scotland. No longer safe to visit Scotland.

Top 10... Right... You need a list closer to the Top 100. I'm going to be there a month + and about the only thing I've decided on is The 500 and Scotch...

You forgot to mention the three Forth bridges. One for each of the last three centuries.
We are still waiting for the fourth one.

As yet some maybe very lucky to get around, if you could afford it. I have not been anyhere around the county at all but sadly its too expensive to get by. I hope Scotland will be indepenance soon because its best European country at heart (at keast good and bad guys)....St. Andrews,Perth, Strling,Kinlochewe are best places should not be missed (last time i was there way back in 90s, when it was cheaper) besides its a good video, i should say.

I'd change the boarder walk to a walk around Sterling Castle, William Wallace memorial and the battle ground. If your ancient Scottish (like me). Go stand at the battlefield where your family once stood, as its very moving (family names are on a plaque).

20 Things to do in Edinburgh, Scotland Top Attractions Travel Guide Video Transcript:

Our week in Edinburgh was action packed! We sampled gin and Scotch whisky, wandered down tiny closes, braved the crowds along the Royal Mile, ate our fill of haggis, and even visited a castle, a palace, and an abbey. So, if you’re looking for things to do in Edinburgh on your visit, this video guide will show you all of those attractions and then some!

Edinburgh Castle is hard to miss as it dominates the city’s skyline. The first thing you should know about the Castle is that it’s not just one single building, so once you’re inside there’s quite a bit to see and do; you can tour the Royal Palace, see the Crown Jewels, watch the firing of the one o’clock gun, step inside St. Margaret’s Chapel, visit the National War Museum and so much more, so give yourself plenty of time.

We also made time to visit the famed Royal Mile, which is the busiest street in Edinburgh’s Old Town. There’s quite a bit to see along here, so we first popped into the Royal Mile Market, which is set inside a former church, and from there we continued down the street, visiting little souvenir shops along the way. You’ll have no trouble finding a kilt here!

Another activity we really enjoyed was taking a food tour with Eat Walk Edinburgh. We got to try a lot of delicious bites and beverages along the way, and one of the highlights was visiting the Fugde House.

Another fun way to explore Edinburgh on foot is by wandering down the tiny closes. These small alleys were often named after a memorable occupant, and the Old Town is full of them.

And that’s it for our visit to Edinburgh, Scotland. We hope you enjoyed following our travels and that this video gave you a few ideas of things to do, foods to try, and places to visit around the city. As always, if you have any other suggestions of things to do in Edinburgh, feel free to share those with fellow travellers in the comments section below. Until next time!

This is part of our Travel in Scotland video series showcasing Scottish food, Scottish culture and Scottish cuisine.
