Wednesday we got up a bit early to catch a train from Kings Cross to Edinburgh for a short getaway.
It took a bit more than four hours, and we passed all kinds of enchanting landscapes that transitioned from snow to sun to sea.
We had an AirBnB arranged near a park called The Meadows,
and after unpacking we went to get an early dinner at a nearby place called Le Petit Mort. The reason for the name was unclear, but the food was wonderful.
We then walked around a bit discovering Victoria Street (which was apparently the inspiration for Diagonal Alley) and the front gates of the castle before giving in to the cold and calling it an early night.
Please note that the photo of the castle was taken at 6:00 PM. 🙂
