Alex, I've really enjoyed reading this blog because it was like a reintroduction to Edinburgh. I didn't remember that there were extinct volcanoes there, and had forgotten other information as well. But I do remember visiting Holyrood Palace, Greyfriar's Bobby statue and the crystal bell with him on it that I bought (I love animals), and visiting a tartan shop among a few other places.
