Woke up to foul weather so decided to spend the day inside the National Museum of Scotland. A great place to spend a day and its free!
A huge place but we were given a plan on entry, only trouble is it was in Gaelic so had to find one that we could actually read!
Jackie Stewarts racing car
What a clever robot!
Pete had a go too!
Another racing car
You could try this one out but there was some kid hogging it!
A great space
Worlds largest crab
Tiger and prey
Worlds largest and smallest eggs
I recognise those two in the mirror!
More anti English graffitti!
Found at Threave, D&G
These robots were display cases for smaller items
Lots of buttons to press to make things work
Taditional cottage with heather clad roof
Cunard ships-a bit before my Dads time though
The worlds largest piece of carved scrimshaw, a whale jaw
Rex the runts in here somewhere!
In the geology section lots of interesting slices of rock
Giant sun fish
Can you spot the leaf butterflies?
So much to see!
Ancient musical instruments
“As long as you have a trade behind you son”
Up on the roof the rain had just about stopped
Great views of the castle…
…an the rest of Edinburgh
“Over the rooftops and houses”
The pigeons live up here
The old and the new
…casting patterns on the wall
Back outside and through the Grassmarket
back to the car
Past Edinburgh Castle
