One Hundred Twenty Two

Location: Roslin Castle, Scotland. Today we left the city of Edinburgh for the nearby village of Rosslyn. The village is apparently well known for its chapel which is the site of the climactic scene in The DaVinci Code. I don’t really care about that, especially since it’s kind of pricy to get into the chapel. There is however, some excellent hiking out here in Roslin Glenn. The trail we followed makes a nice loop through the woodlands, past some beautiful farms, through some lovely woods with a little stream running through, past Hawthorden Castle where the poet William Drummond lived, through some gorgeous fields of wild flowers, and eventually to Roslin Castle and back to the chapel. It took us most of the day to do this walk. We stopped and enjoyed a picnic and explored the castle a little bit. After we finished our hike, we headed back to Edinburgh, this time with plenty of time to find a proper fish n’ chips restaurant. The one that our British friend recommended, turned out to be closed due to fire damage. Thankfully we found another restaurant nearby with excellent beer and fish n’ chips. Another successful day in the beautiful nature of Scotland. I can already tell that 4 days is not going to be enough time here.
