UK Trip 2012, Day 11: Arthur’s Seat and Farewell to Edinburgh

Our last day in the UK followed the pattern of the day before, trying to shy away from hustle and bustle and enjoy the simple, scenic nature of Scotland. Today we went on a hike up Arthur’s Seat in Holyrood Park, then Bob and Meg went for a tour bus adventure while Teisha and Andrew explored Edinburgh on foot one last time. You can visit the day’s photo gallery, or read on for more details of our journey!
