- Lady Stairs Close (Blue)
- Edinburgh Castle (Purple)
After lots of short stops on the previous two days it was nice to get a really good look at the castle. I think we covered almost all of it, the exceptions mostly being the Military Museums. I took quite a lot of photos - I'd like to have a go at making a panorama with them.
Following the castle, our plan was to get some lunch and then do the dungeons. We had a little bit of time to kill as it wasn't quite lunchtime yet. Lizzi fancied visiting the Guide shop so we went in search of that - unfortunately it was as far from where we were as it conceivably could be! On our way we also got some photos for a couple of the other board spaces:
- Edinburgh Waverley (Station)
- Bank of Scotland (Community Chest)
Having completely failed to find a good picture of Waverley on either of the occasions we'd visited to catch a train, we a really nice view from a bridge on our way from the Castle. I stopped to take quite a few pictures here knowing that, if nothing else, Hobnob would appreciate them!
When we did find the Guide Shop I picked up some Holiday badges for my Brownies and an Edinburgh cloth badge for my camp blanket. Walking back it was now definitely lunch time! Once done with lunch, it was on to the dungeons:
- Edinburgh Dungeons (Prince's St/Go To Jail)
- Holyrood (Red)
- Scottish Parliament (Green)
- The Royal Mile (Yellow)
Having wandered a little in confusion, we eventually discovered that we'd come in past the Scottish Parliament - clearly none of enough know enough about politics to know what the building looks like. Sadly it was far too big for any really effective photos and the poor light didn't really help, but here's a bit of it!
Holyrood is also the start of the Royal Mile.
Having made a plan to pick up those four we'd thought about getting yesterday, we headed out towards FountainBridge for dinner:
- Grindlay Street (Yellow)
- FountainBridge (Red)
- Rutland Court (Green)
- Charlotte Lane (Yellow)
From Grindley Street we carried on to FountainBridge for tea at an Italian restaurant. A proper city restaurant, the kind I miss from London.
On our way back, we picked up the last two far out ones (or at least something that approximated to them). We couldn't find a Rutland Court - but got a Rutland Court Lane which must have been pretty close.
