We took the train to Edinburgh, which turned out to be a pretty crammed affair as the passengers from another long distance train had been added to ours. Luckily we had reserved seats so it just meant that the train staff were a little more harried than usual. We got here late afternoon and after settling in to the rather grand old apartment we’ve rented for the weekend
we headed out for a walk. There were only a couple of hours of light left, so we decided to just walk up the Royal Mile which is the road that runs past this apartment building. It seems to be the tourist centre of town, as it’s lined with tartan shops and whiskey bars, but the buildings are amazing.
At the end of the Royal Mile, we got to Edinburgh Castle. It was closed for the day but the views just from the concourse are amazing.
We really enjoyed the walk and on the way back, we passed this guy caterwauling away on these hideous bagpipes.
Today is a glorious day, so we’re heading out to do some more walking. I hope it’s a lovely day where you are.
