We were all up quite early again and on the road by 8.30am. We had expected to be on motorways most of today but instead the sat nav took us the scenic route through woodlands….
then alpine country…
and finally down to the coast…
and to todays destination – Scotland’s Secret Bunker.
We took the audio tour of this underground complex – built during the cold war and kept in working order until 1993. The audio tour was interesting and well worth taking.
The girls were especially amazed at the dial telephones – I remember having one exactly like this growing up.
We had lunch at the cafe.
And while waiting, we all took the opportunity to check our e-mail in free internet area.
Lunch today was a toasted cheese and tomato sandwich. It came out looking VERY burnt, but once I scraped all the black away it was surprisingly tasty :-).
We finished off our tour and headed off in the motorhome to tonights accomodation just past Edinburgh.
We were lucky to see a BIG traffic jam just after an exit so we took the exit and went the slightly longer (but faster) way around. We arrived around 4.15am and the girls disappeared off to the playground.
Pop & I enjoyed a cheese platter while the girls played and I uploaded photos to Flickr. Later he cooked a BBQ dinner – but we ate inside as the wind had gotten a bit cool.
So sad this is our last night in Scotland :-(.
