... get off at Gleneagles as he was wearing a golf jumper but he got off at Edinburgh. Hurrah. I was given the breakfast menu but they then took it away. No bacon roll for me :-( but it got replaced by the lunch menu! Sad sandwich can stay in my bag. They're constantly feeding and watering us. Three cups of tea, biscuits, one glass of orange juice and puff pastry mushroom tart. I've rejected cake, crisps, sandwiches and a second serving of lunch. Definitely getting my £36 ...

We had morning tea - coffee and pancakes and tunnocks (chocolate and marshmallow biscuits). We stayed for about an hour and then kept driving.
We drove North past Blairgowrie and stopped in braemar to have a look in a ...
... were able to go into the front section of the castle, so it was good to be able to see the walls of the castle up close. The view from either side of the top of the Royal Mile was amazing - Edinburgh Castle (like all good castles) is built on a huge rock outcrop, and so the land just falls away on either side. Consequently, you get these amazing views over the whole of Edinburgh.
At 2pm, we'd booked in on a tour of ...
