We were in Kendal over the weekend as Keith’s childhood friend was getting married in Ambleside. The day of the wedding we’d decided to pop into Kendal to get some lunch (the wedding wasn’t till 3pm so we had loads of time to kill!). We stumbled upon Slate while trying to hide from the pouring rain!
We went to the Restaurant at The Bonham Hotel for our 1st wedding anniversary dinner. I’d booked it on the recommendation of some kind people on the Tripadvisor forum for Edinburgh.
We went to the Royal Yacht Britannia straight from our hotel as we were staying at the Leith Waterfront Premier Inn. The yacht is at Ocean Terminal in Leith. The Hop On Hop Off Majestic Tour stops right out front of it.
We visited Palace of Holyroodhouse after we’d been to Edinburgh Castle. Its on the other end of the Royal Mile from the castle so its a pretty easy walk downhill to get to. You also walk past the Scottish Parliament on your way so you’ll know you’re on the right track if you see that!
One of the biggest sights to see in Edinburgh (in my opinion) is the Edinburgh Castle which is built on Castle Rock. The castle dominates a lot of the skyline so you won’t be able to miss it.
