Calton Hill a traditional Scottish lunch

Post by tonyburgos » Thu Jul 11, 2019 15:39

The day begins by visiting Calton Hill, Edinburgh’s most famous ridge, which is included in the city’s UNESCO World Heritage Sites. The hilltop houses numerous remarkable monuments, some of which are modelled upon the Parthenon in Athens, hence the nickname “Athens of the North”. You will also have some breath-taking views of Scotland’s capital.

Walk down the same way you climbed up (from Princes Street) and head towards North Bridge. Before crossing, take a look at the buildings on either side. On the right stands Balmoral Hotel, one of the city’s most exclusive hotels. On the left is the Microsoft building. If you take a closer look into the building, you’ll see that it is extremely modern inside.

Cross North Bridge, known as the “suicide bridge” until you get to the popular Royal Mile. By this time, it will be approximately noon. Depending on when your flight leaves, you’ll be able to explore more or less of the city.

If you still have time, head down the Royal Mile and you’ll come across various museums and attractions: The Museum of Childhood, the Museum of Edinburgh, the People’s Story Museum and Canongate Kirkyard (where Adam Smith is buried). If you’re hungry you can stop at any of its pubs or restaurants for a traditional Scottish lunch.

Holyroodhouse Palace found at the end of the Royal Mile closes at 6 pm (from 26 March – 31 October) and at 4:30 pm (1 November – 25 March). If you decide to explore the Queen’s residence in Edinburgh it will take approximately two hours.

After visiting the Palace, you can take a peek at the façade of the Scottish Parliament, and if you still have time to spare, why not go for a walk in Holyrood Park or go back to the Royal Mile either by foot or by bus (No 35).

There are very few places where you can enjoy seafood in a setting as beautiful as at Suicide Bridge Restaurant in Hurlock.

A gathering place for locals since the 1950’s Suicide Bridge Restaurant has matured over the years by bringing the local harvest from the land and the sea to provide an appealing dining experience along the waterfront of Cabin Creek. Only minutes from Cambridge, Seaford Delaware, and Easton, just take a look-around and get to know us a little better. Call ahead and let us know you are coming... If you don't know how arrive, my suggest is minibus hire edinburgh with driver for easy destination.

Locally sourced produce is featured throughout the menu: hand-dived scallops from the Isle of Mull, 35-day aged grass-fed British beef, and rare, locally-sourced whisky.

With intimate booths for the evening, sunny tables for two under the huge sky-lights, or seats near the kitchen pass next to all the action, Hawksmoor is the ideal spot to dine with colleagues and loved ones alike.
