It did occur to me that perhaps I should have warned you what to expect weather-wise. It's a lot milder now - but dull and wet. Can't win! Still, I'm glad you enjoyed the visit despite the weather.
Did you make it to the top of Arthurs Seat?
Next irritation - women who get on buses laden with shopping bags, then hold everybody up for ages while they search frantically for their purse/bus pass. They know
they're going to get on a bus, so I truly can't understand why they don't have these things ready.
Arthur's Seat was a point of contention. Apart from having to convince two teenage girls that climbing it was a good idea, we parked at Holyrood. Ignoring the 'Only park here for the palace' signs, we set off up the steep hill, only to realise after a slight descent that we'd set off from the wrong place and that conquering the 'seat' would involve an even-steeper climb.
Mountaineering was abandoned for the day but, even halfway up, the views were stupendous.
