    This a very cozy hostel and the staff are super friendly! Although it seems everyone here in Scotland is quite friendly! I would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to other travelers. The only inconvenience is that you have to haul your luggage up a flight of stairs, but it's worth it once you get there.

    Our first day in Scotland has been a blast, yet utterly exhausting! We took off from Chicago last night around 6pm and It was about an 8 hour flight, so it would've been about 2am in MN when we landed in Edinburgh, Scotland. But because of the 6 hour time change, it was actually 7:30am when we landed. So we haven't slept much if at all! The flight …

    Hej dagboken och alla läsare.

    Det började bra med flyget försenat till 09:30. Det var ju snålt med tid för transfer redan innan....

    Hur som helst lyckades planet landa nästan enligt tidtabell. Jättelång kö vid transferdisken. När jag kom fram fick jag reda på att "check in for Edinburgh is too late". Höll på att få ett spel. Efter …

    One of the top sights in Edinburgh is the National Museum of
    Scotland, an institution that consists of two main parts. One of those halves
    is in a stately old Victorian building with a grand central courtyard and
    displays many of the things you typically find in museums covering natural
    history and ethnography, everything from costumes, artefacts, and traditions of
    cultures that were exotic when the collections were first amassed in the ...

    A historical climb

    ... any on comer. It has been in use for centuries upon centuries since and all sorts of things left in the dirt so long ago have since been re discovered and cherished. There is a old crumbling castle near the bottom but this is a newer Land mark, compared to the village remains. We soaked up the view and the history. At the top the tourists and the little midges swarmed with equal ferocity, so we left relatively soon and relished the view slightly ...
