Edinburgh & St. Andrews in 3 days ?

Jump to last reply

Solo Traveler-First trip to Europe. For part of my trip I am considering flying into Edinburgh from London the night of September 13th, staying in the Old Town section, and then flying back to London the night of September 16th. This would give me 2.5 days on the ground I guess.

I know I would like to see Edinburgh Castle, Holyrood Park, Princes Street Garden and mill about a bit on the Royal Mile. I would also like to see St. Andrews and maybe some of the West Highlands Area as well.

It seems too much for 2.5 days logistically speaking.

So the questions are...

Should I do the " Rabbies " West Highlands Lochs & Castles tour or the " Rabbies " St. Andrews & Fife Fishing Villages tour?

Or hire a car and do a combo, (if so, should I drive to St. Andrews or to West Highlands )

Scrap the tours altogether and just do public transit to St. Andrews for one day?

Or just stay in Edinburgh for the full 2.5 days?

I am fine with leaving the hotel at 7am and not coming back to the hotel til 9pm on the two full days I would be there. Thanks for your help.
