Up to Edinburgh on New year’s eve to see in 2012 with fun and dancing and a little bit of drink. Did you now that the Scots celebrate Hogmanay because celebrating Christmas was banned by the calvinist church.
On new years day I did the traditional walk up to Arthurs Seat and then spent some more time exploring Edinburgh.
Then on the 2nd it was the train back down with all the hordes of people, luckily we managed to snatch a couple of first class seats for only an extra £20; not bad for free tea and sandwiches.
Rosko recommends: The castle is great, if a little expensive
Food of the stay: Haggis, what else.
