Day 40 (May 12): Edinburgh... and to Fort William

Woke up to beautiful weather on Saturday.  I went out and took a few photos.

Edinburgh homes near the Castle

view of the New Town from the top of the Royal Mile

looking down the Royal Mile in the early morning

Since the weather was cooperating, after breakfast we decided to hike up Arthur's Seat that morning.

very fun walk and amazing views of the city and surrounds

Then we got on a city bus to the Ocean Terminal where HMY Britannia is docked and took a tour.

really worth the steep entrance fee

Our day was not yet over...  back to the station for our evening train which would take us from Edinburgh to Glasgow and then across the southern Highlands to Fort William.

a lot of amazing scenery on this train ride

And finally, bed.
