At 6am we left Inverness to meet the wonderful Mrs. Lockett. It was a long and quiet drive because everyone was asleep. Before we knew it we arrived in Edinburgh and took a tour of the Edinburgh castle. For lunch we walked down the “Royal Mile” and dined in the “Birthplace of Harry Potter,” the Elephant House. Afterwards we visited St. Guiles Cathedral, the Scottish National Gallery, the Scott monument, where Reed and Andrew took the time to climb up the 264 steps to the top, and St. Andrew’s square. We looked for platform 9 and 3/4 in Waverly Station, but we could only find platform 17 to Stirling. We arrived at Stirling University where we took a brief tour of the campus and had a delicious meal prepared by the university’s chefs. It was a long but fun day.
