        Thanks everyone for my night at Pollock Halls. I enjoyed my first Scottish dinner- Scottish beef and ale pie with carrots and potatoes- and a large glass of Australian red.
        Clean rooms with just what a traveler needs, lovely hot bath, comfortable bed, Wifi, and then a scrumptious breakfast with everything you could think of including black pudding and Haggis- which I am sorry to say I didn't try (maybe next time) great friendly staff- and love the free handouts and information on local sights- Great stuff

        ... we opt for lunch in the Royal Tea Room and find the staff unbelievably pleasant, as if we are royalty ourselves. As Ann and I cannot decide on our order, our waitress actually asks us permission to excuse herself until we are ready to decide on our menu choice! Our meal is not as pricey as I would have expected for this Royal setting ..we opt for the salmon tea sandwiches and cauliflower soup of the day with a tart UK specialty lemonade that is DIVINE! After lunch ...

        ... eased up and as the winter sets in, the icy waters will have all but stopped flowing, until the Spring melt starts to fill it again. Our time in Edinburgh was too short. Time was running out and we had to be back on the bus before the clock struck 2pm. The magic hand of time had expired but left a magic memory. Back on the bus the two hour drive gave us time to soak in the Scottish countryside until boarding our ship and setting sail, for the icy city of Rejkavic, ...

        August 1: We began the day on the bus again, this time headed to Stirling Castle. Stirling Castle had fantastic city views, which you can see through some of the pictures. We walked through a lot of the rooms including the great hall, the queen and kings rooms, the chapel and much more. We then headed to Loch Lomond for some lunch. It was very pretty but we didn't see much of anything there. After another long bus ride we ...
