      Well hello!! Was up at 10 to 4 this morning to head to the airport to start this fantastic little adventure of mine. The panic set in about 15 minutes later when I realised I hadn't printed my boarding pass! My mac would then not recognise it blah blah etc etc etc. Essentially it meant I was completely stressed out, thinking I'd miss my bag drop. ...

      ... for centuries, and more recently, the resting place of the Stone of Destiny(which I will discuss on the walking tour post.)  Arthur's Seat, which we climbed our last day, is a taller version of the volcanic projection that the castle is built upon.  It basically juts out of the ground and looms over its surroundings, just begging to be climbed.  And finally, the Firth of Forth.  That's just a funny Scottish way of saying the body of water that ...

      ... only 'monster’ I and everyone else got an eyeful of was the ginger monster…).

      Graeme took us to some amazing places that we would not have found on our own, and that I could not direct anyone back to, but the photos below speak for themselves. We were blown away by the “serenity” (without the bug zapper for all you Castle fans) and the beauty of the hills. Just watch for midgies (and to all those people who warned me about them, I ...
