This afternoon we meet as a group at Edinburgh Castle to explore the grounds and learn of its historical use and how it is used today. It was very sunny, but bitterly cold and a bit windy. We were able to see the coronation stone which we heard about while we were in London at Westminster Abbey. The crown jewels of Scotland, the birthing room where Mary Queen of Scots gave birth to James VI, and the Scottish War Memorial were a few of the highlights we were able to see and learn more about. The sunset was absolutely amazing to see as we left the Castle grounds and headed down High Street to our hostel.
We ate dinner as a group, using the kitchen in our hostel. Over dinner we discussed our days and shared some cultural experiences.
