Glamis Castle is the childhood home of the Queen Mother, Queen Elizabeth, the mother of the current Her Majesty the Queen Elizabeth II. I was all sorts of confused before going on the tour as to who the Queen Mother was because the mother and daughter share the same name. I think it's clearer than it was but I still find my self question who is who when talking about the royal family.
We enjoyed the tour and had we had more time would have loved walking around the grounds. The highland cows (did not get a picture, what is wrong with me?) are not guarded by a fence but by a low barrier so it looks like they are free range.
We continued on to Edinburgh where Dad and I (and Mom too) started our pub crawl of Edinburgh. We didn't really do a pub crawl but we tried to pop in for a beer in as many as we could. Ryan and I have some favorites (Dirty Dicks, The Last Drop) and Dad and I discovered some new favorites (Queens Arms and The Abbottsford) over the 2 days we were there.
After a couple of pubs and pub dinner, we climbed Calton Hill to get an amazing sunset view of the city before calling it day. I like Edinburgh more and more each time I go.
