When visiting Edinburgh we would encourage you to spend at least 1 day visiting other parts of beautiful Scotland. The easiest way to do this is to join a guided Scotland tour. For more information, please read our article about great day trips from Edinburgh.
Fantastic Day Trips From Edinburgh
There is no doubt that Edinburgh has lots to offer for both tourists and locals. You can easily spend a
day visiting famous sites like Edinburgh Castle and the Palace of Holyroodhouse or if you are feeling
more energetic climb Arthur’s Seat. Or simply just enjoy wandering around the old cobbled streets
However, Scotland is not that large a country and you can visit so many more amazing places in just
1 day. At The Hairy Coo, we offer a selection of exciting day trips from Edinburgh that we promise
will be fun and fascinating for both tourists and locals. Our driver tour guides are all great story
tellers and will keep you entertained for the whole day while you sit back and enjoy the views.
Are you from Edinburgh but have never travelled north? Would you love to visit Glencoe or search
for Nessie? Maybe you are a Harry Potter fan and would like to visit Alnwick Castle in
Northumberland where some of the filming took place. You don’t need a car, just book a day trip
Maybe you are a tourist to Scotland and think visiting Edinburgh will be enough to get a flavour of
Scotland but we promise you will love seeing some of our mountains and lochs and hearing more
about our fascinating history.
