Things to do In and Around Edinburgh City Centre
Edinburgh is an ancient city, so there's plenty to explore, especially on the 'Royal Mile' between the Castle and Holyrood Palace.

Driving Information in Edinburgh City Centre
Edinburgh is a very bicycle-friendly city, so be aware of cyclists. There are no toll roads in Scotland. Drive slowly in wooded areas since there could be wild animals on the road. Some country roads are too narrow for two vehicles, so anticipate oncoming traffic on bends and use safe passing places.
