I am not sure how well you can see the detail, but a lot of the tourist attractions have penny presses. These are from Edinburgh Zoo, the Museum of Childhood and Edinburgh Castle.

I hope you have enjoyed these blog posts about Edinburgh. It was a fantastic visit and the city is somewhere you must visit one day!
