Today we hopped on the bus for half an hour and took a visit to Craigmillar Castle. The castle in its original form was built in the 14th century, and up until the 1700s had major additions and changes. It was abandoned in the 1700s and now stands as a surprisingly big castle with an hours worth of rooms to explore and run around in.
The day started off clear, bright, crisp, and very cold. And then it turned into cloudy and cold. It feels like winter already!
This is a wonderful doorway!
Really I think everyone should have their own coat of arms. Mine perhaps would be a hedgehog and a piece of cheese.
It's amazing to think that people once lived here.
Queen of Scots stayed at Craigmillar a few times! Though once you visit a few castles though you realize that nearly all of the surviving castles had housed royalty at one point or another.
Am I the only one who thinks old latrines are fascinating?

So that was Craigmillar Castle! Where to next?
