We checked into the Ailsa Craig hotel, and then walked a few blocks into New Town, had dinner, and stopped by the Guildford Arms for some ale and traditional live music. The band was great... the pub was overflowing with people and everyone was tapping their feet, dancing, and/or singing along. It was the perfect end to a long day on the road.
