Sally's HomeScotlandHeading North
|Early Saturday morning we hopped onto the train and sat back for a scenic journey through increasingly green fields.
Our first stop was York, we decided to make a day of the long journey to Edinburgh, and it turned out ot be a good choice. York was picturesque. We wandered around admiring the architecture and munching on delicious pastries before heading back to the station to complete the remainder of our journey.
Arriving at Edinburgh we found the hotel easily. The sun was setting and made the main street look beautiful with its views of the castle and the gardens. After a delightful meal of fresh seafood we decided to call it a night.
Sunday morning brought more perfect weather with the sun shining and a cool breeze blowing. Having thought we had aclimatised quite well to the colder temperatures of London we were impressed to see many people walking around in tshirts as we wrapped our coats tighly around us.
we spend the morning exploring Edinburgh castle. It was quite interesting, we ended up buying the guide and that was very informative and made the whole visit much more informative.
That afternoon we decided to take full advantage of the sunshine and relaxed in the park with the view of the castle infront of us and the sound of distant bagpipes playing in the background.
We decided to seek out some Scotish beef for dinner and ended up at a gorgeous restaraunt called Stac Polly. There we sampled some haggis and had the most delicious steaks I have ever eated in my life! The food was really impressive.
Monday brought showers and overcast skies so we wandered around and enjoyed a bit of shopping (minus the crowds of London). Soon after it was time to return to the station to head home.
