I had originally planned to go inside the Edinburgh castle; however, at that point I decided to let it pass. I had seen so many castles and just didn't see the need to see another. I did hear from wanderlustdave that it was great to see, so I kind of regret it.
After deciding to pass on the castle, I made my way down to princess street gardens for a nice leisurely walk. I think that is one of the best parts of being in Edinburgh. I now know how much I love and appreciate the tranquility of being in a garden.
I then headed towards one of the museums I was looking forward to the most on my trip; however, once I got there I noticed that it was only opened during the week :o(. I was very disappointed but luckily most of the museums were around that location. I think I made my way to the National Museum of Scotland. It was an ok place. I personally don't necessarily like being in historical museums. I must prefer visual arts.
At the end of the day, after collecting my belongings I made my way to Waverly station to take my first train ever, to London. I was very happy about spending the extra money for a sleeper cabin and luckily I had no roomate. It was the best experience. Not only did I not have to pay for a hostel for the night, I got to sleep in a pretty comfortable bed, in a room to myself with Duvet covers! I definitely recommend others to do the same if you are considering taking the train from Edinburgh to London!
