Castles, Ghosts, and Whisky (Edinburgh)

A travel blog entry by b.mcintyre23


... are bag pipers, dancers, fireworks, etc. And I'm pretty sure every Scottish person in the crowd (men included) were wearing their kilts. In fact, they were wearing their kilts all day! The crowd gets so into the games, you can't help but want to watch, and want to know what is going on during the game. I find it quite interesting how even with 15 people per side on the field at once, everyone has such an important role to play. And each position requires ...

There is also a young motorcycle team called "The Imps" doing stunts and we all hold our breath as the rain is making it very difficult for them.
