1 Day Sightseeing Tours from Edinburgh with Rabbies
Day Trips in Fife and the Borders with a 5-star rating
Rabbies have put together 6 day tours departing from Edinburgh. Four of these are, unsurprisingly, to the Highlands of Scotland while the other two explore Fife and the Scottish Borders, respectively. The itineraries for these Scottish day tours departing from Edinburgh have not changed much over the years because they have been proven time and time again to be extremely popular with tourists.

Fife is ideally suited for a day trip and this tour put together by Rabbies covers most of it. The sights included in this East Coast of Scotland tour are very different from any of the West Coast or Highlands scenery available on other tours but they are equally as charming.
The fishing villages in the East Neuk of Fife are particularly picturesque while the historic St. Andrews, home of Golf, simply speaks for itself.

Which Rabbies One Day Tour to take from Edinburgh?
My recommendation for first time visitors is to take a Highlands day tour but if you're keen to see other parts of Scotland instead or if you are already familiar with the Scottish Highlands then the St Andrews & The Fishing Villages of Fife Day Tour is a very good choice. This tour takes you to the historic St Andrews and along the gorgeous East Coast of Scotland with its pretty fishing villages.
Combining 2 Scotland day tours
Given the opportunity, I would recommend that you also take one of these next Highland tours on a different day of your stay in Edinburgh. This would give you a chance to experience two completely different areas of Scotland in the space of two days.
