Again we rushed out to hop on a double-decker bus, with the proper coins, to go downtown to visit the Edinburgh Castle. We were there in about 25 minutes; were in the ticket line before it opened.
We had to checkout of our hotel by noon, so we had to rush through our castle tour but thanks to Mindy's astute planning we did see everything important to us. i.e. the Scottish Crown Jewels (no pictures allowed), the Chapel, etc.
