The next day after spending the evening strolling in downtown Glasgow, we went by train to Edinburgh. It’s about a 45 minute ride and not long after leaving Glasgow I got to see green rolling hills.
Edinburgh is a big tourist attraction thanks to the Edinburgh Castle so bus loads of people go there. But as much as I enjoy a castle tour here and there with only one day to spend in Edinburgh we decided to check out a few other cool places.
After a great day in Edinburgh climbing the Scott Monument (yes, all the way to the top), walking up and down the famous Royal Mile (which I totally forgot to take a picture of) that leads up to the castle and then hiking up to Arthur’s Seat it was time to take the train back to Glasgow.
Walking from where my friend lives to the train station in Glasgow, walking all over Edinburgh, hiking to Arthur’s Seat and then back from the train station we calculated we had walked and hiked about 20 miles. I’m used to a lot of hiking and walking but I have to admit my legs felt it. We needed to refuel with some real food. Because the next day we had more of Glasgow to see…
