Our last stop was for a quick supper at the Old Farmhouse Restaurant and Bar in Pitlochry in Perthshire. A location picked in large part because they can serve large groups quickly. On Mike's recommendation I had the haggis, tatties and neeps. Haggis, mashed potatoes, and mashed turnips . I enjoyed the haggis and (to my surprise) neeps.
Back on the road, we got back to Edinburgh about 8:30PM.
This would be my last evening in town and I walked down the Royal Mile to Sandy Bells Pub, stopping to photograph the statue of Greyfriars Bobby.
Sandy Bell's is known for live folk music seven nights a weak. Unfortunately it was crowded and many of the people in the pub were more interested in their (often loud) conversations. I was just about to leave, when I got into a conversation with a couple of young men from London. We talked for over an hour about my convention and their play that would start with the Fringe Festival the following day.
