2. Deliveroo- This was a life-saver for me towards the end of my stay in Dublin, Ireland. It’s a delivery app. Cyclists and bikers pedel and rev ‘round the city with insulated boxes strapped to their backs. How it works? You add your location, and there are infinite takeout restaurant options! My favorite was Tolteca, (literally the Irish version of chipotle. You can get tortilla chips and everything) ;)
(I used Google Maps to find the infamous Calton Hill in Edinburgh. Breath-taking views!)
3. Google Maps- My amazing flat mate Carlie (shout out to Carlie!) suggested that I add this to the list. This works like Moovit, and if you don’t have an international data plan you can easily screenshot the directions to wherever you want to go!
(My flatmates and I wouldn't have heard about Craigmillar Castle without Historic Scotland)
4. Historic Scotland- This was a lovely suggestion from the adventurous Gwendolyn (shout out to Geraldine!) and boy is she right! If you plan on venturing around Scotland this app is worth it! Historic Scotland oversees all the historic attractions that Scotland has to offer. So if you need inspiration for a day trip or need to check fees/hours for your next castle expedition this is it!
