Giving In To a Scottish Holiday Shopping In Edinburgh

Known as the biggest city in Scotland, Edinburgh rightfully pulls in more than a million international travelers every year.

While this popular UK destination is well-known as a World Heritage Site, with travel attractions like the Georgian New Town, the Palace of Holyroodhouse as well as the Edinburgh Castle running the gamut, Edinburgh is also a great place to do your holiday shopping.

One particular souvenir you ought to purchase in this Scottish city is its single malt whisky; hence, a trip to the Royal Mile should be scheduled, just like how the Daily Mail UK Travel writer Claire Bates did it during a weekend getaway to Edinburgh ("The Spirit of Christmas… in a Glass: Hunting for Scotland’s Finest Whisky in Edinburgh").

Below is an excerpt of her travel article:

After a sustaining breakfast of toast and tea, our pursuit of the perfect whisky was side-tracked when we came across the magnificent Christmas fair on East Princes Street… Here, a big wheel and ice rink joined an outdoor market which sold everything from gingerbread hearts to venison burgers. I opted for a glass of mulled wine and bag of deep-fried doughnuts (well, it was Scotland after all.) My friend had been told there was a particularly good whisky establishment down on the Royal Mile, so we picked up an open-top bus to take us there so we could squeeze in a spot of sightseeing.
