On Sunday we woke up at 6.30 to get ready for our Highlands day trip. By 7.35 we were at the pick-up point and at 8 sharp the bus left.This was the first time we were hearing the Scottish accent for an extended period of time and we were happy to get to know it a bit better. It was our last day in Scotland after all. We were also very happy to have another beautiful day. Although we passed under some nasty looking clouds on our way, there was no rain and the whole afternoon was sunny.
We were immediately blown away by the impressive landscape of the city. It seems that the city developed around Edinburgh Castle, a big castle on top of a hill, that used to be the home of the King and Queen of Scotland. The city is built in and around those hills. This means that parts of the city are very high, with very low parts in between.
Today was a brand new day and although we were still skeptic about Glasgow, we were better rested and had a lot planned.
