Scenic Day 18

We regrouped later that afternoon for a private tour of Sterling Castle where we enjoyed being piped into the castle followed by champagne and guided tour.

Hogmanay in Scotland!

... the new friends that I have made were two Canadian girls, Tanya and Karine. We spent a lot of our time laughing at the differences between the Australian and Canadian culture and language. One of the funniest moments was when we were standing on the streets with deep fried Mars Bars and singing Happy Birthday to Tanya. I said "hip hip" and everyone stared blankly at me. I repeated it, once again to silence and I thought "ok now ...

Edmundbyers, Hardians wall, Edinburgh

A travel blog entry by trishfr


... can still be seen With the falling of the Roman Empire this area was abandoned. We walked along the wall for some distance it's amazing they just build up and down the steep hills.

What a great way to spend a week but I think I'd rather do it in the summer. Very invigorating Loved it. ...

Exploring Edinburgh

A travel blog entry by lrbeard


Today we had a bit of a sleep in as Elysia wasn't feeling well yesterday and still fell yuck today (I mentioned this on Skype). She feels nauseous, headachey and tired so might have a little virus or something. She has still been eating and drinking so hopefully will feel better soon. Anyway I went down to breakfast and brought Elysia back some yoghurt and a croissant. We then got ready and set off for our day exploring Edinburgh. ...

A travel blog entry by annhobbs

... a different language? No I don't think so. We have had to accident,ate ourselves to the language. Finally, righ fare, righ bus, and only off a block from the castle stop. Not bad.  We walked the Royal Mile to the Castle, passing oodles of tourist shops, street performers. We could have bought a beach fowl in a plad and wrapped it like a kilt, you kin.  Cheesy.

    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.
