"72 Hours in Edinburgh" Itinerary

Hi, I am just writing to find out more about the "72 Hours in Edinburgh" Itinerary. What is it? How does it work? Is it something that I have to purchase? Are the Stops on the 3 days purchased separately? Is it better to do an Itinerary or to go about seeing everything I want separately? Could you please let me know? Thanks, Nichonar

    Hello again!

    The 72 Hours in Edinburgh itinerary is just a guideline our team has put together to help inspire people on how to build their trip in the city and maximise seeing all our best sights in a few short days.

    Here you go:

    It is completely up to you whether you follow this itinerary as suggested or whether you decide to just take aspects of it. Some parts of the itinerary are completely free of charge (such as visiting galleries, the museum and the Botanic Gardens) and other parts will cost you upon entry (such as Edinburgh Castle, The Whisky Experience and Royal Yacht Britannia).

     My husband and I are planning a Scotland trip for this summer (2019). We would like to see mostly the western coast with castles, abbeys, and nature as our highlights. We know that we want to experience the West Highland Rail and the Jacobite Steam Train. We would like to visit Skye, the Firth of Forth, and the Falkirk Wheel. We would like a mix of self guided, self driving, and a tour day or two. Advice on who would be helpful for the details and itinerary would be perfect. We know that this part of our travel will be after 3 days in Edinburgh. We are thinking 10 - 14 days total for the trip.  We tend to do too much when we travel and we are looking for assistance in helping us narrow our focus.  Thank you for any assistance that you can provide.
