To visit our latest blog about our trip to Scotland September 27–October 12, 2017 follow the link.
Our wifi was terrible in Edinburgh so I was unable to post anything.
We have excellent wifi here in the Lynver Guest House in Inverness but blogger isn't playing nice with my iPad.
On our first day in Edinburgh we walked from our hotel to the Royal Mile. On the way we discovered an interesting old cemetery and a steep trail that went up the backside of Edinburgh Castle.
Unfortunately when we arrived at the top of the steep trail we discovered it was blocked off because that part of the castle was being repaired. We turned around and went off on another branch of the trail further down the hill. This one popped us out at the start of the Royal Mile.
We decided to walk down the Royal Mile and head for the Palace of Holyroodhouse. On the way we stopped in a few shops without buying anything and decided to visit the Scottish Parliament. Wow! What a place!
