      ... carried on business, etc. during that time period. The staff really bring to life the history of Edinburgh. The furnishings are marvelous to look at. They have rosewood tables and clocks, mahogany cabinets with intricate inlays. There are two floors to go through and about seven rooms, it takes about an hour and a half to two hours (if you engage the volunteers, like I do). Once again well worth the time and money. We head back out to the street to see some more street ...

      ... about 11pm but it had the fireworks over the castle to finish, which were good! Though don't worry Dad Robertson I only took pictures this time, I didn't film any of the bagpipers :-). The next day we headed into Edinburgh after a little bit of a sleep in (9am) to have a look around Edinburgh Castle.

To add to the chaos, the train platforms had changed because of the strike, so trains and metro trams were not on the tracks ...

      ... that has a industrial sized peat bog that is routinely cut and re-dug to provide fuel for the power station. Double standards much? Anyway, we continued driving through the beautifully desolate and stark Inagh Valley, stopping at Kylemore Abbey, a beautiful stately home that housed the Benedictine nuns when they fled Belgium in one of the wars. They converted the building into a finishing school for young ladies, and it only closed in 2010. It was then onto the highlight ...

      ... from room to room which was now reduced to nothing but broken brick walls. Above our heads we could hear people walking, talking and laughing, going on about their night as if nothing underneath their feet was going on. This only re-enforced the idea of how scary it must of been for a kidnapped victim to find themselves underground where no one could hear you or help you.

      Lucky for us these dungeons are no longer used for anything except creepy 'Ghostly Tours' but it still ...
