I think we're going to have a great time, but I think we're going to be walking zombies by the time we get back. LOL! We have one total down-day (nothing planned at all but resting and eating) in the Cotswolds, and one in Snowdonia, so hopefully that will help.

Yeah Kaylee -- we're having to plan a second trip if at all possible, and Devon is on our list for the second trip. Along with York, Dover, the lake district...

When you come to Devon, we will have to sort out a Dis meet :)

That would be fun, even if it will probly be several years in the future. Hehe.

Actually that might be fun, Minnie! Question is when and where... We'll be coming from Blair Castle and Stirling Castle on the 18th, then the 19th we hope to hit Rosslin Chapel, Edinburgh Castle, the Royal Mile, and the Museum of Scotland (is that right? The one by the castle that has the Pictish stones) and if we (laugh laugh) have time, Holyrood. Our B&B is about a 10 minute walk from the Castle, so that'll help I think.

If you pm me when you are sure of your plans. I live nearer Glasgow than Edinburgh and wouldn't mind coming through and meeting up with you. There are plenty of places near the Castle to grab a coffee and have a chat :goodvibes

Remind me nearer the time and when you are in Cardiff, if I am around would you like to meet up for a quick coffee in Cardiff City Centre, it will take me exactly 5 mins to get there if its a work day and 10 if it is a weekend.:)

Loads of congratulations Rajah, I know how long you've been working on it. I really hope the UK lives up to your expectations :)

I've just realised the days you are in Scotland are during the week. Not sure I will be able to get away from work. If you remind me nearer the time I will see if I can manage something.
