We spent our last evening in Scotland on beautiful Calton Hill in downtown Edinburgh. With a short 2 minute walk, you can walk around the edges of the hill getting an incredible view of most of the city. There are half a dozen different views and hundreds (if not thousands) of compositions. Calton Hill is an absolutely essential sunset stop in Edinburgh. It's likely great for sunrise as well, but unfortunately we had to leave for the airport before sunrise.
We stayed at the wonderful Sheraton Grand Edinburgh for only 12k points per night. For a hotel that was going for 500 GBP in peak summer season, it was a fantastic value. My Starwood Platinum status gave us lounge access. They have a really beautiful club lounge with a delicious, filling evening supper spread.
