Just that really. I will be spending 2 nights in a lovely looking b & b at end of July with my 12 year old DS. I plan to show him the castle obviously but can anyone suggest anything else in Edinburgh for his age? We are staying near portobello which looks pretty close to a beach area so also plan to go there. Any MN who know the area who can perhaps tell me of any events etc , I would much appreciate any suggestions.

Museum of Scotland is awesome! My 10 yo DS was totally entranced.

Camera obscure is great as is Dynamic Earth. My 12 yo loves both.
