Holiday in Scotland – day 7
First another good breakfast. Then we packed up again and checked out. We grabbed a cab to the bus station at St. Andrews square. There we put our suitcases in a locker. We took out some more cash, and headed for the City Sightseeing. Here we were told that because of the canceled services yesterday our ticket would we valid today as well. So we got on for a full ride, and then some, so that we got off near the castle and begun walking ‘the Royal Mile’. After a while we stopped for Haggis at ‘the Mitre’: very tasty! Here we also became aware of the terrorist attacks on London. Afterwards: back to the cat gallery so that M could buy a T-shirt. Then we decided to head for the bus, and got tickets for the 3pm Motorvator.
In Glasgow we noticed that the X77 shuttle would leave in 3 minutes so walked straight on. This bus took us to downtown Prestwick. There it was 5-10 minutes walk to KinGraig. After a rest & some news updates we went out for dinner. We ended up at ‘the Red Lion’. Police vans kept on driving by in both directions at irregular intervals. There was even a period that the corner by the pub was guarded by to policemen with sub machine guns. We don’t know why Prestwick is getting all this attention… After a full dinner (mixed grill) we returned to the hotel. We got something to drink from the honesty bar & watched some TV, including an episode of ‘House’, which I really liked.
