      The hotel is pretty neat, rooms are bigger. What's really good about them is the service. They let us stay for few more hours than our check-out time. Also they kept the luggage for the whole day in their locker rooms with no extra fee. We had a Bus at night to London, they were very accommodating on the whole. Fully Recommended.

      ... decided to indicate it's battery was running out of electrons! Thank goodness for the GoPro being suitably charged & functional!

Saw the Queen's jewels & slab of throne rock! Visited a few tourist shops & purchased a number of items. Walked to Princess Street where we ...

      ... with screens show techniques of the Scots and English, and then into a third room, which had an interactive map showing the 2-day battle. We didn't have a chance to go onto the battlefield itself because of time and it was pouring rain. Next stop, Edinburgh. A beautiful old/modern mix city. We are staying at the George Hotel on George Street, which just happens to be directly across from the Hard Rock Cafe! We got our room, waited for the luggage. Unpacked a little, then ...

      ... stunning and gave such a good view of the entire city.

      We also took my own advice about trying new foods and had the classic Scottish dish: Haggis.

      I'm not going to lie, I was really apprehensive to put the heart, liver, and lungs of a sheep into my digestive system. It was served alongside neeps (mashed turnips) and tatties (mashed potatoes).

      It wasn't that bad. It had the consistency of ground beef only it had more of a smoky/spicy ...

      ... actual town is considering its famed golf course and well-known St Andrews University where the 2nd in line to England’s throne, William met Kate. From there we went to the ruins of St Andrew’s Cathedral and onto the ruins of the Bishop’s Castle. It’s a cute town, steeped in history with lots of old buildings, cobbled streets etc. It was quite cold at this time (around 100 ...

      A Taste of History and Horror

      ... covenanters that opposed Charles 1 of England- exposure to the scottish winter, starvation, whippings and salt torture created the most brutal and sad aspect of Edinburgh history. In the end those who survived the 5 month torture were shipped to the indies for indentured labour but he ship sunk and only 7 survived. Before the original battle there were 5000 men. Crazy waste of lives.

      Anyway the ghost in this story is bloody Mackenzie who ordered all the punishment to make ...
