Another day and another history lesson, this time we headed to Edinburgh Castle. It was a very cold day again with the sight of snow on the mountains and ice on the road and a icy wind blowing but that isn't enough to put us off so off went for a quick walk to the bus. We arrived on the Royal Mile and headed up towards the castle, beautiful views of snow on the mountains which explained where the ...
... Katrine, I came upon this bench. It was dedicated to Barbara and Amos Burke, with the inscription "If heaven wasn't too far away, you know we would visit every day."

I absolutely love the place. Bagpipes can be heard all over the city and the old buildings and the ...
... have been quite deprived! Down the Royal Mile again to the Museum of the People. This is a very interesting collection of the working lives of the people of Edinburgh. There was quite a strong emphasis on women and their role in both the home and the workforce almost up to present times. A tiny rest then back to Milne's on Rosé Street for dinner. We had a quick browse in a ritzy department store called Jenners ...
