      Edinburgh - Dunfermline, Stirling and Roslyn

      A travel blog entry by debrahuntley on Sep 17, 2013

      Went on another day tour today, and this was much better than the previous one. The tour guide was very good, a master story-teller who is very passionate about his Scottish history . Also the weather was really good. I guess this made the places visited better. First stop was Dunfermline Abbey, the burial place of many kings and queens. Lots of stories about the Scottish hero Robert the Bruce. Incredible how when they discovered his remains 200 ...

      ... backpack off for a few minutes rest, and soon came to the realization that my back was a sopping mess. The cool breeze at the top provided some relief, and by the time I decided to head back down, I was dry and fully recuperated.

Kath's favourite was the vortex tunnel where you walked along a plank in a rotating tunnel with psychedelic lights. It made you feel as if the plank was also rotating. Our sense of sight was challenged by the maze of mirrors, we were forced to rely on touch to find our way through; a bit parallel dimensioned to see so many versions of ...

      ... to "feel the energy".

      Our journey contined along A9 through the Cairngorms Natioinal Forest until we reached the village of Newtonmore. There, we left the bus to visit the Highlands Heritage Museum where we walked through the tall Caledonian pines to see what life was like for the Highland villagers. Walking into the thatched roof houses with their very low ceilings and dark interiors gave me an appreciation for my home and electricity. Entire families ...

      ... before each game, our coach says all she wants to say and then says "Karen, you tell Beth." So we have the English-Speaking-Room and get along great because neither of us can live up to the tidiness expectations of a German, or of Lisa Robinson (my roommate in Australia, who made me fold her laundry and policed how much water had escaped the shower in our bathroom. Stressful! Hi, Lisa!). In short order we are ...
