It was up early as the car had to be returned by 9.30am and we had things to do.. Before Del knew it he was at the station, confused as we were going north when we normally go south!
We arrived at Edinburgh Airport and then got the bus into the City.
It was getting dark as we got to the busy Princes Street and were greeted by the Christmas markets.
So we dumped our bags, drunk the prosecco, and headed out for something to eat..
We ended up going to Fazenda in the New Town to eat, an experience in itself, and Del even got a little cake..
The following morning we could appreciate that view, and following a lovely buffet breakfast in the hotel we made our way to the Old Town.
On the return we walked over the mound again on lovely paths with views to Princes St, using Jacob's Ladder.
We then walked over to Al's only memory of Edinburgh, as when she was about 9 years old she stayed at the George Hotel in George St.
We then walked over to Hard Rock Café opposite and had drinks and nibbles at the bar to keep us going..
In Edinburgh there is live music going on everywhere and we walked next door and watched with a few more drinks.
