Leave the madness of Edinburgh Saturday afternoons behind, and catch one of the very frequent trains to Glasgow city centre. Have lunch, walk around, shop and drink to your heart's content, and get back to Edinburgh in time to freshen up for a good night out!

Rosslyn Chapel is still famous for its history and beauty, but now it attracts thousands of Da Vinci Code followers as it is featured in the film (visit in the morning to avoid them). The stained windows and vaulted ceilings are a marvel - just watch out for the many ghosts who plague the chapel.
Rosslyn lies seven miles to the south of Edinburgh. Take the Lothian bus 15A or First bus 62 from Edinburgh city centre to Rosslyn. The chapel itself is a 3-4 min walk from the bus stop in Rosslyn village.
A working class town at the mouth of the river Esk, the Romans built a fort on high ground overlooking the harbour from which mussels were exported to the capital of the empire.
45 mins from the centre of Edinburgh on a 26 or 44 LRT bus.
