... the first 30 minutes before we reach the stairs. Pretty narrow and with the wind blowing hard, it makes for an interesting hike up. Eventually end up near the summit and the views are incredible. Only a little further to go and we are at the top. Lucky for us, it is a picturesque morning with crystal clear skies so we are able to appreciate the full breadth of view all around Edinburgh.

We went to the Edinburgh castle which sits on a dormant volcano. It was beautiful from the outside, but a waste of money to go in as there was slot blocked off and not much to see. That night we went to a pub crawl tour. We got a free shot at each pub we went to. ...

... are full of flavours (slightly on the salty side for some) but leave me full and satisfied. Service is attentive however we get the impression they are trying to get us to hurry as they are constantly asking if we are finished eating when we are clearly still shoving food down our throat. The damage to my wallet is £100. Karen and I end the night early as I had to transfer some of my things to a smaller luggage for tomorrow's tour. We arrange to meet next week when the ...
