It was also on the Royal Mile that I purchased a really nice woolen serape that I had seen at Windsor but hadn't bought. This time, I was determined to buy
one. The store was really cool and had tons of Scottish stuff. We also saw tins of Vegetarian Haggis! The salesman gave me an odd look when I
asked him what the ingredients were. I believe he thought Vegetarian Haggis was an afront to the original Haggis made with organ meat.
To the left of the Cathedral in this picture, in the distance, is
Tron Kirk. Hogmany celebrations take place here at New Year.
It was built between 1636-47 and it's strange mixture of Gothic and
Palladian architectural styles, the church features a fine hammerbeam roof of
an unusual latticed truss construction.
