    ... castle, with some interesting 'neighbours' who were keen to discuss their sexuality quite loudly, amongst other things. Whilst we have now left the stunning remoteness of the Highlands behind us we are starting on our city break holiday and so far we are really enjoying it and thoroughly recommend Edinburgh to everyone.

I got on and then in about 5 minutes it was finished so I had to get off, which I didn't mind because along the way back to the end we drove past Carlton Hill which is where I wanted to go so I knew the way from being on he bus and just went to the hill. I had to climb another hill but it wasn't even that big, a few steps but the views up there were awesome too. There were monuments up there ...

    ... for about an hour, we left for our next stop: the Kelvingrove Art Gallery. The museum consisted of three stories of various exhibits, including works from the Impressionist era, the Dutch Renaissance, and the Glasgow School, along with large displays of sculptures, weapons, and coats of arms. I especially liked the Christ of Saint John of the Cross by Salvador Dali and the collection of paintings dedicated to the Highlands and ...
