          Although we were happy with every hotel and inn along the route this was our favorite place to stay. It is very modern and up to date and smart looking. The staff is friendly and ALWAYS helpful. Couldn't ask for a better location in Edinburgh. Would highly recommend it to others.

          The most important item for the evening was the consensus amongst participants that the trip was well beyond our expectations and to thank those those that made it happen. George and Stella Dutton were responsible for securing accommodation for over 100 guests and 50 cars, no easy task. I understand they travelled to Scotland to check out options. Stuart and Irene Mumby, tour organisers, did a superb job ...

          ... throughout our day, many many churches in Scotland reconfigured their insides to accommodate the idea of surrounding the Word and being accessible to all. St. Giles is no different. Like many of the churches and cathedrals we have seen this holiday St. Giles was added on over the centuries. It is a reflection of the old and new. The kids noted how the service seemed to be a good combination of both ...

          We got to Charlotte-Douglas International Airport around 11:00am, in plenty of time for check in for my 2:30 departure. I could only eat about half of my packed lunch, but I had brought along a few legal snacks (no liquids or gels). We said our goodbyes but I could see my family watching when I went through security. Then I waved again and was out of sight.

          I found my gate and had a decent wait time, so I read part of a book I had bought at ...

          ... was some thing I had never really heard of before, and it was quite interesting. Then headed across the road to a different pub to have a meal. Making the most of having haggis on the menu here, so I ordered a Scotsmans Burger - a fairly ordinary burger pattie and some lettuce, but it had a piece of haggis in it too! Walked back to where the buses leave from on Princes Street and headed ...

          ... We decided to head to the new town and yet again ended up at another pub. After a few too many tenants, garlic bread, a beef and red wine pie we stumbled home and had a massive sleep in.

          Today we booked in to do a tour of the underground city streets of Edinburgh. It was called Mary Kings Close and the tour is led by a character ...
