This post will be short on narrative and long on photos.

This morning we went to the bottom of the hill below the castle, climbed a steep path up the cliffs to the castle, and were turned away at the top due to construction.

But we made it around to the entrance, toured the castle, and walked down the Royal Mile.

We visited parliament, climbed a big gorse-covered extinct volcano, and finally found our way back to our flat.
