Biggest Fright: We like the haunted ghost walk from the Royal Mile. It was a bit pricey at £8 each, but we loved it.
Atmosphere: Just walk around the back streets of the Old and New Town; the place is like a museum. Try the Water of Leith as well.
Great accommodation: We will always go back to the Balmoral Guesthouse, a sure hit with us and really good value.
The weather: Apparently, we were very lucky. The sun shined nearly everyday and the wind was not blowing. (Edinburgh is known as the windy city.)
