We stayed there for four days and had a lot of fun with the other tourists. It is close to the city centre (walking distance) and the staff is really friendly and it's cheap and clean. The bathroom's are a bit small and I would not buy the breakfast because it's expensive for not much. Rather buy some stuff and prepare it in the kitchen.

... the canons balls came over the walls. We could even see some of the canon balls that are still in the garden and holes in the walls. The Castle was captured many times in its history. After Stirling Castle the tour bus went up into the hills where we saw a flower that was called Heather. Heather comes in different colours such as yellow and white but the most common Heather is purple. The white Heather is really rare so if you do find it, it brings good luck. ...
I arrived late in the day in Edinburgh after my tour to Inverness. Explored a bit of the city with a few of the people from the tour and went to bed early.
The next day (July 7), we visited Edinburgh castle, which is huge in comparison to the few that I had seen before now. Lots of small museums on the soldiers of Scotland were in the castle and there were amazing views of the city as well. After touring ...
