In the evening, join your fellow travelers for a New Year’s Eve dinner in the heart of old town at Cannonball Restaurant & Bar. (Take a look for the gunshot lodged high on the wall facing Edinburgh Castle. It’s rumoured to have been fired by Government troops towards Holyrood Palace when Bonnie Prince Charlie was in residence in 1745.)
