Like every great trip, my guided vacation with Trafalgar came to an end too quickly. Time flies when you are having fun, but it flies by even faster when you are exploring an incredible destination such as Britain. Our final day was spent visiting some of the iconic sights in Edinburgh, starting will a casual stroll down the Royal Mile. The Royal Mile is a name given to the group of streets that form the main thoroughfare of the Old Town.
The crown jewel of the capitol of Scotland is Edinburgh Castle. This iconic fortress commands attention, as it is perched atop Castle Rock; an extinct volcanic plug that towers over the middle of the city. In order to really understand its history and importance, we were met by a local expert with an in-depth knowledge of the castle and its grounds.
