Day 9 – Sept 20 - EDINBURGH AREA

After breakfast K&K headed for the airport and the rest of us set out to travel to Stirling Castle to visit this magnificent site. We went via a drive through a park to a lookout over Edinburgh.

Stirling Castle has quite a history dating back to the time of Robert the Bruce and William Wallace.  It is where Mary Queen of Scots was born and James VI of Scotland aka James I of UK was christened.

Barb has finally found her Knight in Shining Armour

We then continued to Dunfermline Abby where Robert the Bruce is buried. 

We headed back to Edinburgh and had a photo op at Holyrood Palace.

and then we were dropped off at the Castle to look around and make our own way back to the Hotel.

At least it is down hill all the way,

At dinner we sang Happy Birthday to Tim - he was 35 again!

Some of us joined him and Lisa in their Suite and sampled some of Gene's scotch and played cards.  Happy Birthday Tim
