      Despite being very ill this was our second stay here and again they were fantastic rooms were clean an comfortable, Breakfast is basic and the fresh home made bread is so lovely. It is within walking distance of the High street but far enough to be out of the hustle and bustle of the city centre.

      ... The Buddies Welcome after dinner was, to put it lightly, insane. Apparently there were around 600 buddies, which the organisers decided would be able to fit into a room about 1/10 the size it needed to be. It was nearly impossible to move from the entry to the registration desk, and once we had been given name tags, it was impossible to find our group. I did eventually find my buddy and the rest of the group, but it was a relief to get back 'home'.

      ... I took a lot of pictures, because I was pretty sure Dad wouldn't believe we had made it to the top. But we did, and so did a dad with two small children. They made it up alright, but practically rolled back down the mountain from exhaustion.
      Laura and I had dinner that night at the Advocate, met a very nice Australian woman on holiday, and played a few games of cribbage back at the hostel.
      The next morning, Monday, we took a tour of the Palace of Holyrood ...

      ... to much other than trundling and eating while in Edinburgh but it was gooooodd! Michaela One second, we did actually participate in one wee touristy activity, and in true Michaela and Kathryn fashion it was of course an underground tour (our 3rd for the trip). But not just any underground tour, it was a Terror Tour, with the promise of their most darkest and frightening stories, told by our very excitable little tour guide dressed in a huge dark cloak. Needless to say I was ...

      ... and parking is very hard. So most people just stop in the street and then you have to make your way around them. This can become quite funny in the small villages as it is normal to do this and then the traffic has to work itself out. Unlike Australian where you can pull over beside just about any road anywhere anytime, here this is almost impossible so know where you are going before you set off or have a good navigator. In the areas that have a lot of tourist visitors the have made ...

      ... that was, since neither knew enough about Scotlands bodies of water to identify any of them. My map, if I was reading if correctly, said that particular body of water was called the 'Firth of Forth'. After composing ourselves, we decided to jump down, but looking down made the jump seem much higher than either of us had thought when we had decided to go up in the first place. We thought it would be best to drop our bags first, but Erin's rather nice camera was in there and she was ...
