Called Mary's bath, origanally attached to a boundary wall. 1542. no evidence it actualy contained a bath. On the outskirts of the Palace.
Well we made it! Flight was fairly smooth, only a couple of bumpy spots and even they weren't too bad. However... neither of us slept very well. I watched 2 movies and 1/2 of the big bang theory.
We have found another HUGE airport (also under construction) and of course we had to walk the entire length to connect to our flight to Edinburgh. A quick ride up and then down again and Bob's your uncle we were back in Alba.
A short walk to find the car park (yeah right) (made even longer by hauling all of the luggage).
OK here we go - wrong side of the road, wrong side of the car... hey it's not so bad...
With some excellent navigation (by memory) we got to our hotel. Short rest, deep breath and out we go!
Found the Hop on Hop off bus tour and proceeded to Holyrood Palace, the Queen's residence when in Scotland and the home of the king's & queens of Scotland including Mary Queen of Scots.
Originally the site of an abbey built by King David I in 1148, the Palace was built adjoining the Abbey and then added to over the centuries.
the lap around Edinburgh and back to the hotel, changed for dinner and out again. We found a pub called Whiski and had a haggis tower & sausage & mash for Elke. 2 pints of Tennants lager finished with Macallans 15 yr old for Elke and a Glen Scotia 1991 16 yr old. yum! (those details are for scotch lovers)
Allright thats enough, 31 hours without any real sleep is enough. Back to the hotel room and crash!
Tomorrow we return to Invergarry and the Glengarry castle.
