Elijah is still very tired but is keeping food down so on the improve. We tag teamed it again today so Tom, Elijah and I were in the room until 2ish waiting for mum. Thomas and I went to Greyfriars Kirk and burial ground to see more about Greyfriars Bobby today. Greyfriars Bobby was the little terrier belonging to the local policeman. When he was …
For our first day in Edinburgh, what better distillery to start our sojourn than the Edinburgh dram itself, Glenkinchie. Originally founded as a working farm distillery, Glenkinchie is notable in that it wasn't founded because of a stellar water source but, rather, because it was in the middle of what is known as the grain belt of Scotland - a place rich with the king of ...
... time- pretty pathetic stuff. We only heard some footsteps but it was still super creepy and i was real happy to get out of there 40 mins later with no possessions or sightings!!
We then went into the kirk yard cemetery... And i know what your thinking... Who would enter a cemetery at night? Especially a haunted one and your right... It was bloody awful. The guide told us a story of the first concentration camp in Europe and then let us in. It was a place built to punish ...

... it, but we hadn't been up there yet.
I thought it would be shorter to go a slightly different route instead of going through Holyrood Park, but it turned out to not be shorter and left us all saying '...we could have gone through the park, that's much prettier than this...'. As it was, we ended up going through the park via a path that winds around the Queens Palace anyway. I had wanted to go to the gift shop by the Palace, so it worked out.

Probably equivalent to a 3 star motel with regards to the fittings and facilities, however it is perfect for our purpose. We have had 4nights in a Family Room during the peak festival season for £125 a night including continental breakfast.
Bus leaves from right outside your door. The bus costs £3.50 per adult and £2 per child per day, so if you are only using the buses to get in and out of the city you should consider this part of your accommodation costs when comparing it. However, the bus system in Edinburgh is the best I've seen, buses e wry 10 minutes, everywhere, so this is also a cheap way to get around.
My favorite thing is access to fresh air, I hate air conditioned motel rooms, so it was perfect to have the window open.
Good, neat, clean and no fuss.
