Trip Review: Edinburgh - The Return (February 2012)
Epic Battles on Calton Hill
Our initial Edinburgh trip was so popular we had to run a second date!
Edinburgh is the rival of Glasgow, my home city. So naturally I feel out of place in Edinburgh. However the city is awesome. The beautiful buildings and views always give tourists a fantastic experience. Thankfully my disdain for the city is all played for laughs and I can give a great tour of the city.
After another hike up to St. Anthony's Chapel ruins in Holyrood Park and a brilliant tour of Edinburgh Castle again we took off through the Grassmarket. The students really enjoyed the feel of the place. Edinburgh's Grassmarket is like a mini-version of the south side of Glasgow with it's cool little boutiques and quirky bars and cafes.
The finale of the day occurs at Calton Hill at the monuments in the park there. There really is no better place in Edinburgh to whip out some plastic swords and have a wee mock fight. With my pride at stake my friend Scott and I took each other on. Student Tours Scotland isn't just about sightseeing!
I'm pretty sure I lost.
