Scotland is full of our Celtic Cousins, so we're fine. I have a maternal line that goes back there. And Edinburgh is a very unique city. For one thing, it is built on several different levels like three-dimensional chess or maybe an Escher drawing.
|We've got about about three street levels here.|
It is also dark, enlightened, and ancient. Monuments to philosophers, poets, and warriors abound.
And there is a beautiful cemetery across from where J.K. Rowling wrote some Harry Potter. She took names from the monuments for some of her characters.
|There is also a darker corner of this cemetery where a religious minority was walled in until they starved or died of exposure.|
Of course we headed up the hill to the Castle.

The castle is built of and on stone.
