Early start for girls to drop Adelaide to Edinburgh airport. Left holiday home (Dulnain Bridge) at 7am and off on our 2 1/2 hour journey. Lovely morning and a rare bit of summer sun!

In recent times the Chapel has undergone huge restoration which led to much of the Movie `The Da Vinci Code' being filmed here

... was, however, luckily enough upon exiting the station onto market street the St Christopher's hostel was within view! WIN!!!! We stored our bags in the luggage lockers before I chowed down on some eggs florentine at the Belushi's bar within the hostel. Being only early in the afternoon we decided to have a walk around the town to get our bearings and see what Edinburgh had to offer. It is such a picturesque town!! There's nothing like walking along the ...
