4 days in Edinburgh- please help with the essentials!

Jump to last reply

In two weeks time I will visit a friend in Edinburgh.
Of course I already browsed a couple of guide books but so far have no real "plan" what I want to do and see apart from the following:

- National Gallery of Scotland
- Dinner at Harvey Nichols and a trip to the shop
- Edinburgh Castle
- Royal Museum
- National Museum of Scotland
- Georgian House

I would love to go to a good pub (not a gastro one, please) with decent food and I wonder how good the shops are up here.
How is Harvey Nicks? Is Pam Jenkins worth a visit and are there any fine stationary shops to visit? Where can I get really good knitwear? Which is the best bookshop?

As much as I like my shopping more important would be the "feel" of the city so I wonder what else would people consider a must: going to the sea? Visiting the Scottish Parliament? Is an underground walk a good idea?

I am the person who tends to put too many things into an itinerary so help would be very much appreciated!
