      ... in the displays as Edinburgh was a centre of clock making during this period. After our tour and out in the weather again and we continued to walk down the Royal Mile. One of the looming landmarks of Edinburgh is the hill Arthurs Seat. We felt a climb up the path to the top of the hill, called the Radical Road, would a provide a great final view of the city. The path was made in the early 19th century as ...

      ... Plums from Spain, which are the most incredible plums ever. I spoke with him and told him of my quest to find those plums again and to sample ecstasy. Unfortunately he did not have any Santa Rosa plums. My soul was crushed. He did however have these incredible English Plums which I bought in large quantity. So happiness!

      I walked up to Holyrood Park which stands above Edinburgh in a ...

      ... by stone walls or fences and it looks so nice.
      The pub we found was set amongst the hills with stunning views across the region.

Was a bit cooler though, not sure if that is because we were in the hills, ...
