Road Trip part 2 #North Yorkshire to #Ireland via #Edinburgh

With only 25 miles to drive from North Berwick to Edinburgh. We stopped off at the

#village of Roslin for those of you who have watched #Dan Browns the Da Vinci code , you will know the importance of this village. Rosslyn chapel is situated here.

In the film, this was allegedly the resting place of #Mary Magdalen . However, this #Gothic chapel is of great historical importance and shrouded in mystery. Such a beautiful building .

We listened to a brief talk by a very knowledgeable member of staff which ignited our imagination further around the Knights Templar. I think we may need to check our further churches in Rhodes & Portugal! (not that we are religious), but the stories around the Knights Templar are intriguing!

Having had a history fix, we headed to #Edinburgh. We pitched up at the

#caravan and camping clubs temporary holiday sight at Danderhall Estate. Only £17 for 2 nights, bargain! It was a lovely spot with water and chemical disposal available.

With a bus stop right outside the site, we had direct access to the city Centre. Having visited Edinburgh many times before, we were only on a whistle stop tour to visit the

#Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo with family and friends. A fabulous display of military music and other cultures. Defiantly worth a visit.

We spent some time enjoying and soaking up the #Edinburgh fringe atmosphere. Check out #Simeon Baker below. Some cracking music to listen to.

You can’t come to Edinburgh without checking out the Whiski bar. Great atmosphere and whisky cocktails, very nice!

There’s so much to do at the Fringe you need to stay the whole month! But just wandering the streets will give you some great entertainment.

All fringed out after 2 days, we headed towards Cairnryan for the Ferry to N. Ireland. The crossing was at 10.30am, so to make sure we weren’t late we spotted a great wild camping spot just after Lendalfoot and 20 miles from the port. The Varyag Memorial is set in a large parking area adjacent to the beach overlooking the Irish Sea and the tiny island of Ailsa Craig.

Perfect overnight spot and a walk on the beach, we even spotted a #seaotter having a snooze on the rocks!
