Day 5 started off with a mad dash to get out of Isle of Skye. I don’t think we’ve ever packed up and left a campsite as quickly as today. Our aim was to get to Edinburgh as early as possible so that we would still be able to explore the town at a leisurely pace.

We made one quick stop at the Eilean Donan Castle, but there were still midgets and our midget tolerance was super low so we moved on very swiftly. Our camp site for the night was pre booked – the  Edinburgh Caravan Club Site. It’s an exceptional camp site with all the usual high standard facilities, but also very close to a bus stop that takes you into Edinburgh city quickly.  We showered, dressed up a bit and went in to town around lunch time.

The first place we visited in Edinburgh? A yarn shop. Cheeky, I know, but hey, I was in the home town of MCADirect! I wandered round a bit and in the end bought Sirdar Baby Crofter for a blanket I’m working on. John waited patiently.

When we initially planned this road trip the plan was to spend the 4th of September, John’s 40th birthday, in Edinburgh but we ended up arriving a day early and couldn’t spend a second day there, so today ended up feeling a lot like his birthday. It was really fun and we enjoyed Edinburgh immensely.
