4/29-5/2 Edinburgh, Scotland

To end our time in Scotland we spent three days in Edinburgh. We explored the humongous castle that the city surrounds, visited Adrian’s old house, and learned about Edinburgh’s deepest and darkest secrets on a ghost tour. The city was set up perfectly for walking, with the old town and new town on either side of the castle. We felt like our days there were packed, but could spend another month and still not experience all of the city.

At the top of Arthur's Seat with Edinburgh in the background. We only lasted about ten minutes before the wind and rain chased us down.

  1. Yes, as soon as I saw the pretty yellow flowers I said “Gorse” thinking of the thorns … so the next photo made me laugh. 🙂
