We woke again this morning at 6:30 and my first thought was to get out on the bike again. Good job I didn't because by 7:00 it was bucketing down and really it didn't stop the whole day. Our plan today was to drive to Edinburgh, about 230kms. We are having a family get together at my cousin Wendy's house on Sunday afternoon.
First order …
... whisky), especially as the main course of a Burns supper.
When the waitress brought the check I told her I had googled it and found out what it was. I then described liver hash and rice and she said, "Eweee, I wouldn't eat that!"
This is great place for shopping...went on a little shopping trip before going back to the hotel for the evening. The castle was all lit up at the top of the hill, so pretty! We couldn't have asked for a better hotel ...
... the food here. We have been consuming vast amounts of Tablet which is a sugar and butter sweet, Nick got me onto it back in Australia so when we spotted it here, we were straight in. Also Irn Bru, a soft drink which kind of tastes like red creaming soda to me. There were heaps of pubs and restaurants in our area in the west end. For Rich and Tenae's benefit, we ate and drank at Teutcher's, the Cambridge (made famous by Ian Rankin apparently), and Bon ...

We got most of the phone issues sorted out yesterday and while we are away our contact number is 0750 232 6692 (no it's not too many numbers). Still have to sort out internet access for the phone, but we have it on the tablet anyway. If we can get internet on the phone, the blog photo files won't be so big ...
... be mingling amongst those famous golf players we only see on ESPN or The Golf Channel.. OK, perhaps "mingling" isn't quite the right word but to see close up with your own eyes those shots that they highlight on TV is very cool.

TravelPod Member ReviewsWest End Apartments Edinburgh
What could be a beautiful place is let down by a number of small things that are missing or never thought of. This apartment is very modern and a number of the fixtures are expensive but :-
- Shower drain was blocked, the trap had never been cleaned since new. We could have been flooded out.
- No soap dish in the shower
- Stacks of stuff missing from the kitchen.
- no elevator from underground car park,
- large parts of the complex still a construction site.
I gather this place has been open for 12mnths but the building has never been finished.
Modern appointments - fridge, dishwasher, washer
LCD TV & DVD player - with 40+ channels
