Why not consider a refreshments stop or an early dinner and trying some traditional Scottish cuisine at one of the city's many excellent restaurants. Then take a walk through the elegant Georgian New Town, which is known for its beautiful architecture and sophisticated atmosphere. Here, you can visit the Scottish National Gallery, which is home to an impressive collection of European art, or spend some time shopping at one of the city's many independent boutiques.
In the evening, make your way to the Edinburgh Castle for the Edinburgh Tattoo. This annual military tattoo event features performances by military bands, dancers, and other entertainers from around the world. It's a truly unique and unforgettable experience.
