      ... along with fresh air and a good workout. I followed the trail to the top, and then wandered around the hills for a few hours, not sticking to the trail at all. It was a very windy day – perfect air conditioning for the climb. Another day, we walked through Inverness Park and attempted to get into the Royal Botanic Garden (not realizing that it closes at 4 pm during the winter). We also walked to Stockbridge, a cute area of Edinburgh that was significantly less ...

      ... 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.

      ... it as well. Some of the aspects of the tour were really scary .... We went through the courts and got to experience first hand the sort of crimes people were hanged for and also got to see how they physically punished people in the dungeons. What can I say, we are very lucky with our system today. Something such as being accused of being a witch can mean you die ... Even if you proved that you are not a ...
