Edinbugh


Last week we took the train from Bristol to Edinburgh, and had a wonderful week here. 










We took open top tourist bus rides around Edinburgh. 









We also saw paintings in the National Gallery, went to Dynamic Earth and learnt about the the big bang and the creation of the earth, as well as seeing a million pounds at the Museum on the Mound, a museum of money, and saw a wonderful exhibition of maps at the National Library of Scotland






Went to Tweedbank to see where Sir Walter Scott lived in Abbotsford House .








 Met some friends who we have known for nearly forty years and we all went to the Royal Yacht Britannia. 


I know they probably won't see this but we would like to say thank you to the three ladies who helped us. The first lady and her son who stopped in the rain to point us in the right direction for our hotel after seeing us trying to read a map on our arrival. The lady who told us of a better bus to get to the Royal yacht and then went to look for the correct stop for us. And the lady at the Camera Obscurer who advised we wouldn't see much that morning.
