Departed Amsterdam on a 10:30 flight for Edinburgh. Got a bus downtown and then a taxi to the B&B. After unpacking, we set out, found pies for lunch, and then wandered a bit of the Royal Mile. With a beautiful day, we set out to Holyrood Palace Park with the intention of hiking to Arthur's Seat, but took the route with a bit less climbing, but still had lovely views of the city. We quickly went through the People's Museum. Several pints and fish & chips were well earned after all of the walking. We returned to the B&B, donned warmer clothing, and headed back out to wander the streets, watching all of the street performers in for the Fringe, and finally took a walking tour, Murder & Mystery, that was quite campy, yet quite entertaining. A quick pint followed and a blissful 8 hours of sleep. I think I'm over the jetlag and ready to go! This morning, Monday, I had a lovely Scottish breakfast with a potato scone, which was an interesting addition.
