For our last full day in Edinburgh, Vicki and I decided to climb the "Salisbury Crags" in Palace Holyrood Park, the tallest of which is Arthur's Seat.

We were shown around Cockenzie House (it has over 70 rooms, though we saw only a few) by a man whom, we discovered, was the owner. He moved there about 30 years ago and is trying to restore it.
