    I mainly plan to fly Friday morning and back Sunday.

    I equally might fly Friday night and back Monday, but that's less likely.

    Depends what you/Grible do.

    Sounds good to me. When/where? I'm studying maps already so I'll be able to find my way around without relying on my phone :P

    Edinburgh's easy to navigate, just use the Pubic Triangle as your base of operations.

    Never underestimate the ability of my family to get lost. It'll happen somehow.

    Which would mean I'd only be able to come for a day.

    Otherwise I can probably stay at my sister's in Amsterdam.
    If you're just coming for the day activities then just turn up.

    Do NOT do this!

    Edinburgh is however nice and easy, Pub somewhere in the Old Town/Tollcross?

    Either/Or - Did you say you'd have family Micky? Squirrel is probably a bit more kid friendly.

    Squirrel seems like a good first choice. If you give us an idea where you're staying that might help. I mean if it's nice weather even going to udderbelly can be nice.

    Family as in my dad and my brother, no one under 18

    I'll ask my dad where we're staying, he's booked and paid for it all.

    Squirrel is ok, also the Golf Tavern at Bruntsfield Links/Tollcross is pretty nice in my entirely biased view. What with it being my local and all!

    Not much use if you're staying down in Leith tho. Although there isn't exactly a shortage of pubs to choose from anywhere in this city.

    Man I haven't been to Golf Tavern in years.

    I suppose over that side of town we have Mantle? Argyle is nice in Marchmont (my old local).

    Reluctantly .

    So basically I can take either Friday or Monday off work.

    Do people think it is better to arrive Friday morning/early afternoon vs leaving Monday morning?

    I'm probably going to take the Friday off. I mean, depends on how I'm getting there of course but it makes more sense in my head to take the Friday off.

    I've booked the Friday and the Saturday off work, I get weekends Sunday/Monday so I can do either, I'm kind of working out how to deal with the orchestra and what the flights are like - but it's tech week for the show that are in fringe rehearsals just now so I'm kinda busy (This is lunch technically).

    I'm probably flying 11am Friday, 9pm Sunday then.
    Yeah I thought Friday seemed like a better day to have off out of the lot.
