Winter days in Edinburgh

There are still no trains north of Carlisle due to the Lamington Viaduct repairs and the replacement buses increase the journey times. I managed to slip away from work and catch an earlier train out of Lime Street Station than I had originally planned. 612 more words

Gorgeous Galleries

Oh, how I love it when a museum has free entrance. Although the art in the national gallery of Scotland was pretty similar to a lot of art I’ve seen before, and it was kinda busy, the gorgeous red walls did make for a pretty location to take some pictures.
