Haste Ye Back Scotland.

Last week I went on my mini holiday to Edinburgh, Scotland. I really enjoyed myself and would love to return back someday. I saw, explored and packed so much into 4 days it's incredible. As expected it was a little chilly compared to my southern England climate but to be fair - that's Scotland for you!


On our first day we went and visited Edinburgh Castle. I remember learning about many events and monarchs from History at school. It was neat to finally go there and it is the focal point to Edinburgh itself. It's so timeless and stunning in the backdrop! You can't not visit it.



Then in the evening I got to meet a blog friend Laura Anne! I have to say this was one of my highlights of the trip. She was so lovely and I could speak so honestly with her. We went on a Witchery Ghost tour of Edinburgh which was entertaining. Plus, she introduced me to chippin' sauce - chips will never be the same again. I'm glad we're not just IRL buddies. Thanks Laura Anne for being so kind and being my ultimate tour guide!


I also got caught out by this stuff. It happens a fair bit in Scotland I hear. It seemed to follow James and I wherever we went.


In the first photo (of the rain) the backdrop was my favourite part of Edinburgh. Arthur's seat. I read about Arthur's Seat in a book called One Day by David Nicholls. The way he described it made me want to climb it and go there. I was not disappointed, the views were BEAUTIFUL! They overlooked all of Edinburgh and you almost started day dreaming looking at the scenery. 



There's an old tale with Arthur's seat that every year on 01 May before dawn you need to climb to the top and wash your face as sunlight creeps over the seat. It is only then you achieve everlasting beauty!

We also went shopping which was really nice and enjoyed having ice cream in the gardens. We also went to Edinburgh Dungeons which was fun as well. On our last day we decided to do a tour of all of Edinburgh on one of their many open top buses. And guess what?

It rained. Umbrella ready - we left Edinburgh in style! 

It was certainly a trip to remember. I loved every minute of it and quite fancied a Scottish accent on departure. Shame my attempts always came out Geordie! (Newcastle).

Lucky girl! I'm way jealous right now, and you don't even know the half of it!

I've only been to very limitted areas in my own county, and I'm dying to travel all over the world. I'll make it there someday, but right now, I'll just sulk, haha.

I'm glad that you had a blast. =]
