... of people who already had tickets and there would be no free parade of marching bands for us. Unless you count the parade of buses carrying the performers that circled and went into the grounds.

So off we went in a bit of rain. Of course, it was the first time we hadn't carried our waterproofs with us. We just walked slowly, nearly getting killed when I led Donnie out into what I thought was a pedestrian street. The traffic starting both ...

Edinburgh & the Highlands

... We stopped here for a quick bite – a chicken tikka pizza went down a treat. Chicken Tikka was invented in the UK and we couldn’t let the opportunity for this fusion meal to go by. The lake side was beautiful and we wanted more of it so we started to head northwest towards Oban. The lake soon started to reflect the grey skies and turned pitch black. It was also very still which gave it a sinister effect. It’s not hard to see why the Loch Ness monster ...

... they are viewed like a bad Monet painting; beautiful anyway, because of who spawned it.

I later pinky swore with Regina that one day I would come back to Edinburgh for the Fringe, so I didn't feel too horrible about leaving her and Edinburgh behind me. For now, it was on to a small town called Stirling, just a few miles up the road, to have a poke around for a couple of days before I headed to the Isle of Skye where the seat of my ancestors, the Macleod's still live to this ...

Edinburgh Fringe Festival Review 1 - Hill and Weedon This free show was a musical comedy duo. We were interested in this show because of Flight of the Concords... And it was free. It turned out to be a hilariously weird show. Highlights include "What it would be like if E.T never went home". I can't explain how funny and well done this was. It might have been the funniest 5min of my life... Apart from when ever Tim Rickards slips over. Seeing that big man fall over is comedy gold. ...

Scotland the Brave.....

... then headed back to the hotel. Edinburgh is a very impressive city, well set out and good transportation. Work is well underway setting up a tram system that runs through the city and suburbs and out to the airport, scheduled to be completed in 2014 that will run on electricity, saving the need to bring some cars and buses in to the city.

    clean and comfortable, good staff.
    No TV in the rooms and the front road is very noisy due to it being a cobblestone road.
    don't stay here if you are driving, there no parking without have to feed a parking meter every 4 hours.
