The Balmoral indeed looks lovely but I think the Roxburgh hits my price/performance ratio perfectly.
I love old castles and old churches so your list looks lovely! Sometimes things are cliche because they are that good.
I am with you on the wine, but the UK tends to have me think beer first. Thanks for the restaurant and wine suggestions.
My real last name is McPherson so my challenge with whisky is to STOP drinking it. I think my forebears may have emptied the Stewart's storehouse more than once!
I am doing a trade show in Frankfurt but I have a meeting with somebody on a Monday in Edinburgh. Planning on flying in on a Saturday, playing tourist on Sunday and working on Monday.
Thank you so much for all the info!
