This morning we jumped on the bus to tour the city of Edinburgh and it was very chilly - about 45-50 tops, We saw lots of buildings most of them old and stoney and dark. Then we got off the bus to tour the CASTLE. It is located on top of a great hill and looks like a dark fortress, You have to walk up a long hill to get to the drawbridge, but we had already bought our tickets at the bus place, so we bypassed all the crowds.(This first part was written by my mother, Pat) It was amazing that people could live like that in that big castle on a tall hill. We also toured the castle dungeon.
It was horrible (not that I expected it to be like a holiday!). Seriously, the smell of the place was a mixture of urine and musk. It made me sick and thankful I was not stuck down there to spend my days.
After the castle, we went to the Scotch Whiskey tour, which taught me many things about scotch (including how they made it), with the most important thing being: that I don't like it. :) It was strong and gave me the shivers when I was tasting it. Yuck!
It was so cold I put my hood on so I looked like a total dork!
We jumped on the bus tours and took a cold ride through the city to end out day. It is a great city. I love all the roads that have all the houses lining them. Great place to visit! But seriously on this last picture, what is a "Nut Hoose"? What kinda barber is that?!?! :)
