drafty old castles…

stairs

another castle?

We’ve seen a lot of stairs like this since arriving in the UK. We climbed many – in the gatehouses of the ancient Roman wall in York; at the Tower of London; at Edinburgh Castle; and at two castles we visited whilst on our Scottish Highlands tour yesterday…

Imagine our surprise last Sunday when we arrived in Edinburgh and made our way to our apartment on the Royal Mile. We keyed the entryway in James Court – just a few steps away from the Jolly Judge pub – pushed open the door and saw this old stone circular stairwell up to our 1st floor flat.  Is that cool or what?
