Short weekend in Edinburgh

Jump to last reply

I will be in Edinburgh (my first time to Scotland) for a very short weekend in late June. I fly in from Dublin Friday evening and have a return flight on Sunday afternoon. I'm debating on whether to take a tour trip into the countryside on Saturday or just spend the entire weekend in the city. I realize it is a bit of a personal preference, but I was wondering what other travels have most enjoyed about Scotland.

Last year I spent a weekend in London and was able to do the London Eye and walk around Buckingham Palace the first night, do a double decker bus tour and Stonehenge on Saturday, and visited the Tower of London on Sunday before flying out. So, I do like see as many sites as possible, but I'm not sure if the day trips out of Edinburgh would be worth pre-empting more time in the city. Any advice?
