Well, we decided to try something different today - with mixed results. We had decided that we wanted to experience a Highland Games while here in Scotland. It was kind of a turkey shoot as to which one to go to - but Perth fit the date and bragged well about itself on-line!!

On the hill to the left was the Pitlochry theater and we read that they were currently staging ...
Woke up to pouring rain but as Lady Luck has been happily by our side, the rain stopped just as we were getting on the Royal Yacht Britannia. Yes it's permanently docked in Edinburgh harbour and is open to the public. It just so happened that they were celebrating the yacht's 60th anniversary, so we were very privileged to be there for this special celebration.
