I didn't take too many pictures up there, as it was a bit of a frantic visit for selling my old MX5, clearing out a storage unit and catching up with friends. We stayed out near Currie on the West of Edinburgh, near the countryside.
After Edinburgh, we drove back to York via Berwick and Bamburgh castle.
Once back in York, we did a loaf of day trips to places in Yorkshire. First up was Fountains Abbey.
The road in is surrounded by a deer park, with plenty of them lounging around in the sun.
Fountains Abbey has a huge grounds, with loads of wildlife.
Around the grounds there are loads of smaller buildings, all immaculately maintained.
Walking up higher into the gardens gives some great views of the ruined abbey.
Walking towards the ruin gives you an idea of how big the ruin is.
Under the abbey is a well preserved undercroft.
Some of the other buildings have similarly stunning stonework.
Finally, a quick wander out to St. Mary's Church.
That's it for part one, next up is more of Yorkshire.
