Spent the day touring the Edinburgh castle, wandering along the Royal Mile and enjoying a pint or two in a tavern. This evening we visited a farm north of Glasgow and were treated to an amazing meal of lamb in a barn that was also visited over the years by Rob Roy, William Wallace and wait for it. .. Mel Gibson! The latter was described as about 5'8" compared to the real William Walace's 6' 6"! We also enjoyed a wee dram. Belfast and Dublin tomorrow.


  1. Make sure you check out the size of William Wallace's sword - it may surprise you, as it did my brother and his wife when they were through Scotland.
