Our day began bright and early Thursday morning with a full Scottish
breakfast sausage, eggs, black pudding, beans, bacon (which was much like
ham), mushrooms, a tomato and coffee.
The bus required the exact change. It was more simple and cheaper to buy a day pass for 3.50 p. We got off right in front of the Wallace monument.
