Welcome back! Today’s adventures are back on base in Edinburgh. This day was a long one…we toured Edinburgh Castle and watched the Military Tattoo in the evening!
As mentioned previously, Edinburgh and Scotland in general are full of stairs and hills. Hello, leg day #5 (or #6…or #7…)!
I’m a sucker for cafes. The Redcoat Cafe is on site, and has delicious lattes:
We had quite a bit of time between our tour and the Tattoo, so that gave us a chance to explore more around Edinburgh. I broke away from the chaos of the Fringe Festival, walked all the way down the Royal Milke, and to the calmness of Holyrood Park:

If you are planning to ever watch the Tattoo, be aware that it can get very chilly and windy at night. I’m very glad that I brought along my track jacket and that I was wearing pants!
Next adventure: St. Andrews!
