We took the train to Edinburgh in lovely crisp sun. We got a cab from the station to Leith to go and have a tour around the Royal Yacht Britannia. Its really interesting and a lovely ship. I was a little surprised at the lack of opulence in the Royal bedrooms, especially the Queens. Just an ordinary single bed, dresser, chair and table. What I enjoyed most was seeing the crews quarters, the bridge and learning that the piano in the grand salon had been played by Noel Coward. Also had a lovely lunch!
We had a little wander around the city afterwards before getting the train home. I managed to find the hidden 17C garden off the Royal Mile that I had read about. Dunbars Close.
Thank you Hector – a lovely day.
