To The Palace, Please!

A travel blog entry by mccausland


... to view the room where Mary Queen of Scots gave birth to her son James in 1566. James would become heir to two thrones: not only the Scottish one, but also to the English because Mary's cousin, Queen Elizabeth I would remain childless. Prince James would one day rule as James VI of Scotland and James I of England. The last true king of Scotland. Dave and I grabbed a quick bite to eat on the castle grounds, then made our way back down the Royal Mile to ...

The first day in Edinburgh

... you believe there is an app for that? We download the app and find where we need to go.

... s a better option *g*

I can't believe it's already August 20th...we've been here so long already, and we'll be leaving in less than two weeks. Our current plans seem to be to check out of here on the 31st, catch the train over to Glasgow to spend two nights there (Kel wants to check the place out, but I don't know why *g*), then a coach-and-ferry trip across to Belfast. We can spend a bit of time in Ireland - north and south - and then come back across to the ...
