    Great list – you MUST go to the One Spa at the Sheraton!! But I wouldn’t bother with the Edinburgh dungeon. Its the only time I’ve been disappointed by a local attraction. Its all fake – why bother when there are real underground tours to go on. And its a bit outside Edinburgh but if you haven’t been yet you must go to Jupiter Artland.

      Thanks for taking the time to read it.

      Never even heard of Jupiter Artland – thanks for pointing us in that direction, it looks amazing.

      We’re saving up for the Sheraton or at least keeping our eyes out for some deals. You’ve made us want to go even more now.
