Castles in the glen
I’ve had yet another lovely day wandering around the Roslin area near my home, and am feeling energised with the switch from rainy winter weather to the crisp subtlety of spring.
The walk was a gentle(ish) ramble of 3.7 miles that took about two hours. Bits of the track were muddy and icky, but it was relatively dry and easy to navigate. (Though it might be difficult for some young children and anyone who isn’t quite stable on their feet.)
The walk also passed by two castles (Roslin and Hawthornden) as well as Wallace’s Cave and a couple of other interesting sites. It also included lots of ups-and-downs, switch-backs, and Jacob’s ladders, before ending near the site of the Battle of Roslin.
Oh! And I got to play along the river shore, too, which was cool! (I even brought home old glass and pottery found along the way.)
But I’ll stop with the words now because I know you really just want to see the photos—and because I have to get ready to go to a friend’s place for dinner. Such a busy social life I have all of the sudden!
