Where I stayed
Bus station backpackers
We then headed to the castle. We were told that tickets to the castle were 15 pounds each, which is quite steep, but since your here you can't not go. We walked through the castle for most of the day taking pictures and reading about the history of how Scotland freed itself from British control
The castle was good but I don't think it's worth 15 pounds. Our hostel owner later told us that they had been raising the prices 1 pound each year to LOWER the number of people who go there. We can't remember why but they don't want many visitors; but apparently the high cost isn't detering people!
When we left the castle we went through some of the shops and stores and managed to pick up a few things for back home. It then started to rain so we ended up getting stuck inside of a mall just as we were going to leave and so we went to the food court and had our first fish & chips of our trip; it was not as good as I thought but it didn't come in newspaper and we got it in a mall food court so thats probably why
We then wandered down through the streets again to find a couple free museums. It was getting close to 5pm though and we figured they would probably be closing anyway. We found the people's story museum but the top floors were closed so we only saw a couple figures by the entrance. We were really on the lookout for the children's museum where the guy at the hostel told us they had a big collection of old toys from past years. When we finally found it though it was indeed though and we were kind of bothered with ourselves because the internet place we had been to earlier was just around the corner from it!
We called it a day then and went back to have supper and pack for our flight to Dublin to see Karen & Bill!!!
