  • Learn a bit about local history. Great overview of the Battle of Jutland. Disappointing overview of the history of the bridges
  • Quite interesting
  • Fab day out
  • Well worth a look at this museum an excellent and a bit scary full size Burry Man on display. Excellent views of the bridges. Loads of local history to enhance your visit.

Where to stay in Edinburgh

Edinburgh hides a maze of cobbled streets dotted with boutique hotels offering inexpensive rooms and outstanding restaurants. Many of the city's Gothic buildings house chic hotels with easy access to most of the city’s main tourist sites. For a uniquely Scottish experience, consider staying in the famous old town. Despite being in this historical district, many hotels here feature contemporary decor with lots of glass walls and muted color schemes. They’re also known for offering spacious rooms, comfortable beds, and restaurants serving classic European cuisine, with a modern Scottish twist.
