Overnight travel by coach to Scotland.
Spend Saturday visiting Edinburgh with your guide to see the sights and learn some fascinating facts about the country and its people. Visit Edinburgh Castle (extra charge) or the shops or museums. Late afternoon you will be taken to your hotel.
A free day to do whatever you wish, either join your guide on the optional tour below or you can return to Edinburgh. Another option is to take a train to Glasgow to see the sights there, which is about 1 hour travel away.
After breakfast you will be checking out of the hotel and will for most of the day be traveling back to your home destination. Time of arrival at your home is about 9pm - 11pm depending on where you live.
Harrods of London installed a novelty in 1898: the world's first true escalator (to be fair, an inclined moving belt with metal bars for traction did make its debut two years earlier on Coney Island). The oddness of a moving staircase so unnerved many shoppers that employees were stationed near it with smelling salts and cognac to help revive those overcome with fear.
