... on. We had a short stop in the cute town of Pitochry before arriving at our 2 bedroom apt in Edinburgh - a great find. We picked Sue and Anna up from the airport before returning the car which was a bit of a nightmare winding through narrow cobblestone streets before going several stories down a multi story carpark.

After more than one lap on the ...

They are meant to represent mythical, water dwelling creates that mostly took the shape of a horse, called Kelpies (I'm sure that was a surprise). We even got to stand inside one of them! You feel so tiny standing in there, as they stand 26.5m high. From there we drove to the ...

... returned to it's country. After the walking tour we had a lovely Starbucks break to attempt to wake us up and then it was time for the castle tour! Castle tour: -Walked back up the royal mile to the castle. Focused on a famous Scottish author (who's name I forget) that started the nationalistic movement within Scotland and was responsible for many changes within Scotland. There is a huge memorial building that was built in his honour - the front of the castle is ...
