Day 20: Edinburgh III

Our last and final day we did more touring of the city and decided to spend it hiking up to King Arthur’s Seat; a high peak in the city with unbelievable views. It was really windy and quite chilly the whole trek up but totally worth it.

We took the unbeaten path back down. Eric guided the way and we ended up in some thorn bushes at one point. But it was pretty!

We worked up quite an appetite so we stopped by the Sheep Heid Inn (Est. 1360), a pub that Eric read about in our guide book. “The Sheep Heid doesn’t feature too heavily in the history books until the time of Mary Queen of Scots when it became a stop off point on her regular jaunts between the royal palaces of Craigmillar and Holyrood”. Fantastic decor inside...

We spent the evening packing up our things, getting ready to head home, and crying* because we didn’t want to leave. We left the flat around 4 in the morning. A very long day of traveling ahead of us. First stop, London. Then, on to Nova Scotia and finally Philly :(
So long, Amazing Honeymoon.
You. Were. EPIC.

*Not really. Well, maybe just a little.
