We join the regular tour today at the Dalmahoy Hotel & Country Club. There will be 22 of us on a bus that holds twice that many.  Darn.

The hotel is 9 miles from Edinburgh.  Here are two shots of the Edinburgh Castle from the back of the building.

The afternoon is spent visiting the Royal Yacht Britannia,, decommissioned in 1997.  The last of a long line. There will not be another one.

Tomorrow, assault on Edinburgh Castle.

    John, don’t be a snob. 🙂 Dick Francis [at least until he started writing by formula] were fun too.

      No place was ever more shipshape than the yacht of the Queen of England. A self-guided audio tour is included with admission. Very informative. All the ships clocks are set to 3:01, when the Queen last left the ship at the 1997 decommissioning. It is said she really really felt at home there and cried when leaving.
