We ventured into town around lunch time and headed up to Edinburgh castle. After standing in line for a while we had a 30 minute tour. The guide was great - dry jokes, concise and informative. We inspected all rooms the castle had to offer ...
... too - maybe they fell in the hole?) and waiting... and waiting... and waiting.... When a Fife bus did eventually arrive, it was the slow one - a quicker one was due fifteen minutes later but we weren't prepared to take the chance and miss it - so we ended up visiting, slowly, every village in Fife and arrived back in St Andrews at 2:15pm!!!
