2002 Blair Atholl Patrol Jamborette
Touring Day 7 - July 15th
Our last day of touring was spent on the
"Royal Mile" in Edinburgh. While Tony and I returned the
minibuses, the rest of the group toured the Castle, and we all met
up on the Esplanade in time for lunch.
Afterward, we enjoyed the optical exhibits at the Camera Obscura,
and got a virtual tour of the city through the Victorian periscope
arrangement (at right).

At the bottom of the Royal Mile is Holyroodhouse
Palace, the queen's residence when she's in Edinburgh.

Several of the Scouts bought practice
bagpipes in the shops on the Mile. They tried them out when we got
home to the Scout Hall in the evening - I'm not sure, but I think
the tune was "Scotland the Nauseated".
One more night in the Scout Hall, then off to the Jamborette!
