      I meandered my way back down the Mile, stopping at a cafe for hot chocolate and cake to warm up. Not too far from the cafe was a gallery selling old art prints and the like - I spent ages browsing through them and eventually settled on a print of the mountains at Glencoe, which I'd seen in person yesterday. The print is from the late 1800's or so, but the shop had some maps dating back to the 1600's! From there I made my way down to the bottom of ...

      Next stop was Holyrood Palace. Holyrood Palace is Queenies official residence in Scotland and you can actually take the tour through and see some of the rooms as they are used today. This was very exciting. Thanks again Jannie and I thought you would appreciate I managed to get Staff to this one as well. Queenie actually spends one week here at ...
