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.

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 ...
