Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its
labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests
this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly
visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers
that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the

the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal

Hi, We are considering the Complete Scotish Experience and I am wondering about Hotel vs Superior Guest House. Typically, is one or the other a better location, particularly to get to restaurants or pubs in the evening? What are the pros and cons of each? Any other advice for that tour is appreciated. Thanks!

I would like to know what is the difference between the Superior Bed and Breakfast compared to just the Bed and Breakfast on your 3 day tour to the Highlands. Could you please send me examples of where you stay and would 4 people be able to stay in a double room? Also, what time do you leave in the morning and return ?
