Trip to Scotland



          When my wife and I discussed a trip to Scotland the first city I wanted to see was Edinburgh. I think for a minute she thought I had lost my mind as I moved the recliner all the way back and in my best Scottish accent said, " Ahhh, to swim and walk the East Lothian beaches like Gullane  with its pubs,  great views, beginning the day surfing and ending it with a romantic sunset.  Maybe we could see the Yellowcraig and run about," I said, "or fly a kite, or see the Castle near Dirleton."  Still with my head laid back and my eyes closed now my Scottish draw was getting the best of me as I continued, " Edinburgh, filled with seven Castles and each with a tale.  Speaking of tales we can listen to them talk about the hard life of Mary Queen of Scots, or the powerful Crichton and their Blackness Castle which held a tower prison to place those who upset them and the museums could encompass and entire trips stay."  She came over and sat on my lap and said, "OK, already, and where do you plan on spending your evenings around this precious trip to Edinburgh?"  Well, I had an answer and when we explored it together we both agreed to purchase tickets and visit my dream city of Edinburgh.

           We selected for our first few nights to stay in a two bedroom apartment which sleeps four (our two adult children will go with us).  We will tour during the day, enjoy the fine food in the city, and return to a clean apartment to shower, send pictures home with the wireless broadband network or watch TV.  In the middle of our trip we wanted to enjoy a Edinburgh Bed and Breakfast.  Edinburgh Apartments offers a nice selection of Bed and Breakfast locations with varied amenities which can be viewed at scottishaccommodationindex.com.  Many of the locations are close to mass transit and beautiful city restaurants.  The last part of our trip we wanted to stay in a hotel.  Edinburgh Apartments provides a wonderful selection of beautifl and very affordable hotels to choose from in well placed locations for travelers.  This was going to be a trip of a lifetime for our family.

          When our arrangements were final I went back to my recliner chair and quickly ordered a nice cold beverage for my wife to serve me.  Needless to say my fantasy is not totally complete.  Visit the Edinburgh Apartments web site to compliment a world class trip to Edinburgh, Scotland.
