    ... the Portcullis Gates into the courtyard where the black cannons were including Mons Meg that was so heavy it took 100 men to move her and by the time she arrived at a battle it was usually over. The Royal Palace was richly decorated and all one expected. Particularly enjoyed The Scottish National War Memorial, wonderfully done, remembered all the battalions and all who played a part, including a plaque for the women who had helped. This was well worth the visit ...

    The day begins with somewhat cloudy conditions with a forecast top temperature of 17 degrees and showers later in the day.

You can see the whole of this beautiful city from here. Talking a different track down to the next point was quite steep. Talking the next track that every one takes, I started off but had a ...

    ... the Surgeons Hall, which made for some interesting reading. The specimens in the jars were pretty impressive too, with descriptions about the damage to that particular body part. There were stories here too about murders and body snatchers .........creepy. Not that it should have happened, but was carried out in the interest of medical research and advancement - thankfully the offenders were caught - well one was - the other got away with it. One ...
