This week has seen us travel 160km through bonny Scotland!!
On our journey, we had travelled through Edinburgh – the capital city of Scotland. Edinburgh castle is actually on a volcano. It is an extinct volcano called Castle Rock (and here was me thinking that was purely Game of Thrones), which was formed around 350 million years ago. At 130 metres above sea level, there’s evidence that it was a prime area for a tribal hill fort from as early as the 2nd century AD.
Central to almost all historical events that changed the course and face of Scotland forever, the castle is still in full and active use. It is one of the few ancient castles in Britain still to have a garrison. Part of Edinburgh’s World Heritage Site, Edinburgh castle achieved the ultimate in modern fame in 2009 – it appeared on the back of the Scottish 10 pound note, issued by Clydesdale Bank.
After Edinburgh, we travelled north through Perth and we have just arrived at Tay Forest Park. Below is our exact view where we have ended up – no bad!
Let’s see if we can complete our journey next week. Only 375km to go! Stay safe and be active!
