Day trips from Edinburgh can be easily arranged so you can explore beyond the city. While there is ample to do in Edinburgh itself, getting outside the city can show you more of Scotland from different angles.

For some Edinburgh day trip ideas, I pulled together my favorite days out that we’ve done in the years we’ve lived here. There are probably plenty more to do, too! But, so far, these seven are my favorites.

When friends visit your expat home, you turn into a de facto tour guide. It’s one of my favorite parts of being a serial expat – I get to continuously learn about new places and then to share that insight with some of my favorite people. We’ve only been living in Malta for a few months, but already we’ve had a few visitors!

Edinburgh skyline in a fog sets the mood for the Real Mary King's Close tour

Edinburgh is a city of many levels. You should keep your eyes on the ground to be sure you don’t trip over uneven cobblestones or stumble down a set of stairs. But you should also keep your eyes up so you don’t miss a unicorn sighting or breathtaking castle view.
