Arthur's Seat

An extinct volcano, Arthur’s Seat offers the most stunning views of the city. It’s about a 251-metre climb to the top, but the spectacular panorama is worth the hike. However, you won’t want to attempt a trip to Arthur’s Seat while carrying heavy backpacks.

Built around 1829, Old Town’s Victoria Street is home to charming shops and remains one of Edinburgh's most Instagrammable spots. Harry Potter fans flock to the Elephant House and Cafe, where J.K. Rowling wrote the bulk of her first two Harry Potter books.

While you’re in the area, check out the Greyfriars Bobby statue, a monument to a Skye terrier who guarded his owner’s grave for 14 years. Legend has it that rubbing the dog’s nose bestows good luck.

Real Mary King's Close

Constructed over a sealed medieval alley, Real Mary's Close features an underground maze of spooky 17th-century chambers with resident ghosts. The city buried the allegedly haunted Close with towering tenement buildings in the 18th century. You can book a dramatic guided tour of the creepy labyrinth, but you won’t be able to carry bulky luggage through the narrow passageways.

Palace of Holyroodhouse

Marking the end of the Royal Mile, the Palace of Holyroodhouse is home to the royal family when they visit Edinburgh. The palace originally belonged to Mary, Queen of Scots, who lived there from 1561-1567. 

Like Edinburgh Castle, you’ll need to arrive early to avoid throngs of tourists, and you won’t be able to enter with large bags.

Scott Monument

The Gothic Scott Monument is dedicated to novelist Sir Walter Scott. The incredible view is worth the 287-step climb to the pinnacle, but you'll have to be in pretty good shape to make it to the top with your luggage.
