If you don’t mind crowds of people, getting bashed by the odd selfie stick and moving at a speed of an elderly tortoise (in the Old Town at least) then it’s definitely worth battling the Royal Mile to get a taste of what’s on this Festival season. It is virtually impossible to walk down the Royal Mile without being handed a flyer for the best comedy, performance or show – it’s actually a great way of discovering a show you might not have been aware was on. The Edinburgh Fringe has a great website but with so much on it can be a little overwhelming to navigate. Even the app returns hundreds of results!
Tobermory is a colourful harbour town on the Isle of Mull in the Scottish Inner Hebrides. It is located on the east coast of Mishnish, in the most northerly part of the island. Famously the inspiration behind the popular children’s program Balamory, this gorgeous little town is full of quaint shops, cafes and restaurants. You could easily spend a day exploring this absolute treasure of a place.
