Our Trip to Scotland.

Updated: Oct 24, 2021

Scotland: August 2021 We're back in London after a very bonnie week in Scotland! Our travels took us to Edinburgh, St. Andrews, Dundee, Glasgow, the Highlands, and the Isle of Mull, a small island in the Inner Hebrides. So, over the course of the week, we spanned Scotland east to west, but not north to south. We will be going back!


A DAY IN EDINBURGH:

We squeezed into our sleeper car on Friday night in London, and woke up the next morning in Scotland. Our stroll through Princes Street Garden was so lovely, with Edinburgh Castle in the distance.The monument to Sir Walter Scott is perhaps the tallest monument to a writer in the world! It looks like one of the "drip" sandcastles we made as kids.

After a pass through the farmer's market, we took a walking tour of the Royal Mile with a charming guide. So much history and intriguing folklore! The kilted gentleman next to Kevin was Deacon Brodie, the real-life inspiration for "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde" (by Scotland's own Robert Louis Stevenson). The curvy street of shops is said to be the inspiration for Diagon Alley (JK Rowling lives in town). And we even found John Knox, a leader of the Scottish reformation, buried in a parking lot -- space number 23.

After the tour, we had a delicious lunch at the National Gallery -- I had cullen skink, a smoky haddock chowder. Yum!
