    Edinburgh

    June 18, 2017 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ☀️ 24 °C

    Huge day. Breakfast a 8.00 then after our morning 'communications' session got a bus in to town.Walk through Princess Street Gardens, then 2.5 hour walking tour around the Old Town. Then a visit to the Castle followed by a walk down the Golden Mile. Then, perhaps foolishly decided to climb Arthur's Seat. Must have taken the longest and most arduous route as finally made it to the top. Easier walk back down; drink in the Salisbury followed by a great Indian around the corner. Walk back to the B&B absolutely shattered.Read more
