We returned here this afternoon to see the rest of the museum. Nice views of the castle and town from the rooftop.
We are now on the train heading back home.
Tranquil in the morning sunshine.
A great view from Princes Street gardens with the castle in the background, looking very imposing. Phil looking almost as imposing!
We visited two National Trust properties this afternoon. The Georgian House (in the ‘posh’ part of Edinburgh
And Gladstone’s Lands, in the old town.
Both very interesting, with excellent and interesting guides.
A castle that is as impressive from below as above.
Another cultural day today – we arrived when it opened at 1000, and have yet to complete one floor! A varied collection to say the least.
We are at Edinburgh Castle. Lots to see, of varying interest to each of us. Having wandered around quite a bit of it, we’ve stopped for a pot of tea. Cute little milk bottle…
Once rested, we’ll see the rest of the castle.
A bit of culture for the afternoon…
Good views of Edinburgh though
We’ve had a lovely journey on the train from Inverness through the Cairngorms and across the Forth Bridge to Edinburgh.
A leg from the Forth Bridge, and the road bridges can just be seen through the window.
We had our final dinner on the boat last night, complete with a dramatic “Address to the haggis” from the crew.
An early start this morning to catch our train to Edinburgh!
And goodbye to the “Lord of the Glens”
Which has now done its final cruise for the season.
