Cameron Explores the Great Places on Castlehill!

There is still more great stuff to see near Camera Obscura, so today I went across the road to the Scotch Whisky Experience.

There is a barrel ride, where you get to learn about how whisky is made. Then you get to have a ‘wee dram’ as Scottish humans call it, which was drinking a small glass of whisky. Then you get to see the largest collection of whisky in the world!

At the end, I took up an unconventional spot at the bar:

Can you spot Cameron?!

A little further down the hill is the building that used to be Highland Tolbooth St John’s Church and is now the Hub, home to the Edinburgh International Festival. The Hub is almost 250 feet tall, so I could not get it all in the photograph.

This is apparently an appropriate time to write #selfie (if there is ever an appropriate time, said a colleague).

I tried to make another friend at Gladstone’s Land, but he was not very talkative:

Inside is a 17th-century style house that belonged to Thomas Gledstanes, which was very grand to a little bear like me.

That’s all from that adventure. I wonder where I’ll go next?….
