Edinburgh: 8: A Royal Farewell

It was my last day in Edinburgh. My flight back to London was at 5.55pm, and while I was sad to leave, I didn’t want to waste the morning!

We decided to visit Craigmillar Castle. We were going to do this the Saturday before, the day I had arrived, but had instead decided to visit Roslin instead. When we got to the castle, it was chucking it down with rain again. Luckily, although part of the castle is ruined, part of it in intact, so we got some shelter from the rain.

I really enjoyed Craigmillar Castle. It was beautiful, and I loved the yew trees that grow within it’s walls. While there is no furniture or anything to see due to it being ruined, we loved exploring the wings of the castle and the castle definitely had a royal feel to it. We could almost see Mary Queen of Scots walking across the courtyard! The castle also had some amazing views and we could slightly see central Edinburgh in the distance!

As we had some time to spare after leaving the castle, we stopped at a nearby garden to have lunch. We had leek and potato soup which was delicious. It was then I started feeling sad. I couldn’t believe it was time to go home, it had been such a good week and exactly what I needed.

After leaving the garden centre to pick up my bag, it was time to go to the airport and go back to London. I was sad to leave, but I knew I’d be back. This trip firmly cemented Edinburgh as one of my favourite places in the world.
