Scottish Roadtrip Day 2: Edinburgh Festival

Edinburgh Fringe Festival

After the long drive yesterday (7 hours door to door) its a rest day for the MX-5, but we still had things to do! After a relaxed morning in Perth wandering around the city and buying a birthday present for my Dad, we jumped on a train to Edinburgh to take in the festival.

After a bit of rain in the morning the weather in Edinburgh was gorgeous, with all the bustling street and people sat outside cafes we could have been somewhere in France/Spain, but the architecture and Scottish accents reminded me where I was.

We spent most of the afternoon wandering around the old town and taking in the atmosphere on the royal mile, before heading to the Pleasance Courtyard to see YouTube sensation Brett Domino. The show was really funny and apparently we will be appearing in a video soon!

After the show we had our dinner outside at a Kurdish restaurant (different but very nice), took a stroll through Princes Street gardens and got the train back to Perth. Crossing the Fourth rail bridge we were treated to a spectacular sunset over the Firth of Forth.

Mileage so far: 355
