Inside the castle are magnificent high ceilinged rooms full of treasures, and down in the basement there are wonderful kitchens including various strange objects such as a very early vacuum cleaner.
Our next stop was Berwick with its Elizabethan walls and viaducts enclosing the original town. We took the self-guided walk around the walls, reading the plaques full of interesting information. One was all about a certain L.S.Lowry who spent many summers living in a house just by the walls with lovely views across the water.

After suitable refreshments we drove on along the coast and made Edinburgh in time to stretch our legs a little before the celebrations.
