Hi- we will be travelling to Scotland the end of September and I am trying to get my itinerary together for Edinburgh. We will only have 2.5 days here and I want to make the most of it. We are staying near the Waverly Train Station so I think we are close to a lot of the major sites. I need one thing Sunday afternoon when we get there before we get ready for dinner. Can anyone help? I was planning Monday and Tuesday being our "pound the pavement" days but not so much that we are overwhelmed. We want to hit all the big things: Sir Walter Scott Monument, St Giles, National Museum of Scotland, Edinburgh Castle, Deacon Brodies Tavern, Holyrod, Greyfriars Bobby, The Elephant House, Calton Hill, Scottish National Portrait Gallery, Princes Street Gardens and some shopping. Also, please advise if we need any type of fast track ticket to bypass lines to any of those attractions? I would be so grateful for any help!!!
