Greyfriars Kirkyard


We got a true Scottish welcome (think rainy and drizzly skies) as we caught the train into Edinburgh. We enjoyed a wet day looking at all the exhibitions at the Edinburgh Castle and admiring the artwork at the Portrait Gallery (definitely worth a visit, a lot of history as well as art). When the weather cleared, we did an interesting walking tour that took us to lots of the main sights and cemented more of the interesting history. Highlights were: Greyfriars Kirkyard, Grassmarket, and shopping along the Royal Mile. Dan was very chuffed to buy a Harris Tweed tie (we’ll come back for the jacket when we’re rich!)
