After our adventures in the highlands, Brian and I spent two (split) days in Edinburgh. Despite being the capital of Scotland, Edinburgh, doesn't have the chaotic big city feel that you would would expect. We really enjoyed exploring the city, walking among historic buildings, and of course touring Edinburgh Castle.
