      ... least hear it. I also learnt that the Scottish Crown Jewels were hidden away and forgotten about for over 100 years during the 1700 and 1800s. Sir Walter Scott rediscovered them hidden inside a huge chest inside Edinburgh Castle in 1818. We also went into various exhibitions and the Scottish National War Museum. George also got to hold a Lee Enfield rifle inside the great hall, he was chuffed.

      August is festival time in Edinburgh and I am making my annual outing to the Book Festival. The train I catch is later than intended, necessitating a taxi from Haymarket station.

We were flying with Virgin Atlantic and they gave all passengers the ok to ...

      Hi all - just letting you know I'm still alive in Scotland. No Net access in the new flat yet, but splurged on one month access on a dongle! Lots of data, but not good reception... oh well.

      ... back to the hotel. Buses are easy to get around on in Edinburgh. After tea we headed back into the city for the Military Tattoo. This involved climbing about 150 stairs to get from h bus drop off to the castle and then once at the castle more to get to our seats, Jo was not impressed. Getting the thousands in each night is managed well (they have had lots of practice). It started well and ...
