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.

Dalmahoy - Where we stayed on our second night and I pretended we were in a Jane Austen novel.
