Up bright and early, left site 0845hrs, destination Edinburgh. A pleasant day for a change and a pleasant drive. planned on lunch and a look round Aviemore but couldn't fin anywhere to park so missed out. Crossing the Firth of Forth is quite spectacular.
Lovely view of the historic Forth Railway Bridge but not weren't able to photograph it. Arrived at Edinburgh CC site 1310hrs.
Set up and had a brew. Went for a walk along the waterfront before settling down for the evening.
The site has a mini bus link to the City Centre costing £5 return, resonable value and half hourly service. We got 1000hrs. Walked the length of Princes Street taking in the atmosphere then up the hill to the Castle.
The Scottish soldiers always look imposing in dress uniform, the Afrika Corp called them the devils in skirts. It was very crowded up there and the amount of guided walking tours were a hindrance to those of us not in them, but, nevertheless we enjoyed it.
Coffee and paninis in Caffe Nero then back down to Princes Street.
We visited the art gallery for an hour, very interesting and free. Got the minibus back to site at 1630hrs. Leaving both Edinburgh and Scotland tomorrow.
