Edinburgh

So here we are in beautiful Edinburgh, so far we have been to a wonderful musical comedy called the rat pack, Michael was called onto stage to be barman for Frank Sinatra, Michael said he stole the show and did it his way haha.
The edinburgh fringe festival is on for the whole of August and the crowds are crazy huge, last night the 4 of us had an amazing dinner in Edinburgh castle with the lone piper performing privately for us, then watched the incredible spectacle of the Royal military tattoo, it rained, we all got soggy and cold but the smiles never dimmed, after we headed to Michael's bar (The Bow Bar) for a nice warming whisky.

Glamis castle

Glamis castle (pronounced Glams) is the childhood home of the Queen mother, she lived there until she was 23, it is a beautiful stately family home, I was amazed that all the amazing furniture etc was not roped off at all. The coronation robes of the queen mother and the Princesses Elizabeth and Margaret were on display, absolutely stunning.
